Cart validation triggering for State field when a foreign country is selected
I'm having a problem with the cart's validation being triggered on checkout when a customer from a foreign country (Switzerland in this case) enters nothing in the state box. It seems to be trying to validate a selection from the US State dropdown, which is hidden when a country other than US is selected. When I recreated this and entered something, anything (letter, number etc) in the State box, all went well. This only occurs when nothing at all is entered, either in the Billing or Shipping State fields. Help?
Also, is there a quick way to disable the validation until I can fix this? I commented out the lines in paymentoptions.js and it's still validating.
