I don't really understand what your question is, but I wouldn't
recommend this method. What's to stop me from downloading your form,
editing the name of the form elements and having you correctly validate
some text when you normally think it's going to be a number? It all
depends on how you implement your form, but it can be easily exploited
if you don't know what you're doing.
