I sincerely appreciate your last two comments. My point, however, is that they DID NOT give the required format. And they DID NOT suggest the required format when the wrong one was entered.
On other sites that do not use dashes, they INVARIABLY tell you what you've done wrong. This is the first one I've run into, and I did not fall off the turnip truck yesterday.
Sorry, but with all due respect, we have a basic difference here: code guys will never prise the concept of proper usability from my cold, dead fingers.
