CSS Form Builder Client Validation Error

Hi Dani,

Thanks for the reply but I am still having some issues. I went and put the file where you said to (of course it is a slightly different path on the mac). One thing was strange though is that the JS file didn't even originally exist in that folder on the Mac... maybe there is an issue with installation of CSS Form Builder on the Mac. But either way, after adding the JS file, it still gives me the same error when trying to edit the "required' behavior in the tag inspector. It also still doesn't validate anything as I can press submit with nothing in the field that I have added "required" to.

To reproduce, I am simply making a form on a blank page with one field just for testing purposes. I did this after narrowing down more complex forms, so I could just test the functionality of the required behavior.

Here's the code that is generated; maybe you will see something here that tells of the problem:
