thanks, and I'd like your opinion on an issue that has come up because of the validations. This was already set up with the 3 lines of inscriptions when we inherited this project. With the validations in place the customer must fill out all 3 lines. If we don't validate all 3 (I had only 1 of them validated) then if they neglect to fill out some other required field, any lines they put in on inscription 2 & 3 will be lost on validation. What I am thinking is a text area might work better, with 3 lines and max characters specified. Then there would be only one field to verify. Does this make sense to you?
