the script is
var m;m=prompt('Member name:');
and the validator does not like the unescaped ampersand... how do i go about escaping it.
a quick googling has not brought up anything i understand, so thanks for your help, Donald

thanks anyway, donald

the correct form is -
I've solved the escape-the-ampersand-problem by going over to ';' instead.
In php you have to change two settings -
arg_separator.output = ";"
arg_separator.input = ";"
