Spry Validation problems in IE identified!


I had huge problems getting Spry validation to work in IE on pages built with SA wizard. I tried hundreds of differnt settings in wizard without luck. Yesterday by incident I stumbled over the solution!? At least it works now. The problem is that in "Configure field settings" you must configure the email field to display as password! If you choose to display as text then Spry won't work on any fileds in the forms created. Also the forms will not display Spry validation if the first field in a form is a text field. This only concerns IE and is not an issue in all other browsers tested by me. (I only tested in IE8 but suppose that it also concerns IE6 and IE7?).
The first field in a form on a page generated by the SA wizard must be set to be displayed as "password" and not "text". To me it is not ideal to have the email field presented to my website users as a password field since its harder when they fill in the forms to ensure they filled in that field correctly! Sure they get a warning from Spry if its wrong but for security I see no use of having a field set as a password field other than the password field itself!?
