I get no date picker in my web page. But it appears fine in the fiddle. Below is my script: 

<html>

 <head>

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

    <title>JSP Page</title>     

    <script type="text/javascript" src="datepicker.js"></script>      

    <script type="text/javascript" src="mootools-yui-compressed.js"></script>

    <script type="text/css" src="datepicker.css"></script>        

    <script type="text/javascript">           

        new DatePicker('.picker', {

            pickerClass: 'datepicker ',

            allowEmpty: true

        });           

    </script>        

 </head>

 <body>

     <label>Datepicker starting at and allowing no value:</label>

     <input name='date_allow_empty' type='text' value='' class='date picker' />

 </body>

</html>

You can find my full script here: http://www.monkeyphysics.com/mootools/script/2/datepicker

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong here?

Run your JavaScript code after the relevant elements exist in the DOM and move the script to the end of the page. Also , you have to put the datapicker after mootools. See the below code: 

<html>

 <head>

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

    <title>JSP Page</title>     

    <!-- FIRST CHANGE HERE, swapping the order of the script elements -->

    <script type="text/javascript" src="mootools-yui-compressed.js"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript" src="datepicker.js"></script>      

    <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="datepicker.css">

 </head>

  <body>

   <label>Datepicker starting at and allowing no value:</label>

   <input name='date_allow_empty' type='text' value='' class='date picker' />

   <!-- SECOND CHANGE HERE, moving your script to *after* the elements it operates on -->

   <script type="text/javascript">           

            new DatePicker('.picker', {

     pickerClass: 'datepicker ',

     allowEmpty: true

     });           

   </script>        

  </body>

</html>
