Can't be true as long as the spry folder lives in the webassist folder. In each re-do of the form I deleted both the form and the webassist folder from the remote server and then uploaded the both from the locally stored copy. The webassist folder holds all the changes. The entire folder was uploaded "new" each time.
I had to go into the CSS form and delete the validation off the page to get it to work. I was using the "sharp" template that came with the suite of tools. It's definitely not working. The text is embedded to the right of each form cell and it's not supposed to show unless someone doesn't fill in a blank that's required. That's not what it's doing. It's showing the error messages on the form load immediately.
