I have a datepicker control setup using the JQuery UI, I am also using the JQuery UI themes which provide a bunch of default icons that I want to use.

The DatePicker allows for specifying a specific image, i.e.:

<script type="text/javascript">
  $(document).ready(function() {
    $("#DateFrom").datepicker({ showOn: 'button', buttonImageOnly: true, buttonImage: 'images/ui-icon-calendar.png' });

To display an icon from the icon set you use something like:

<span class="ui-icon ui-icon-calendar"></span>

Is there an easy to integrate the two or do I just need to hack out the styles/images manually?
