Hey everyone!

Hope you are having a great weekend, and I'm hoping someone might be coherent enough to help me find a more elegant solution to a problem that I have...

For client-side simply use javascript to monitor what they user enters and then immediately respond to the requirements imposed upon the user.

After the user fills out the information correctly and clicks submit, then have your server-side scripts check the data again and respond accordingly.

Here are a couple of examples:
