With the DMCA in the U.S., it's hard to know what might be illegal,
but it might be possible to test this in good faith by entering a
slightly higher amount rather than a slightly lower one -- at least no
one could accuse you of benefiting from the experiment.

I find it hard to believe that anyone could be dim enough to rely on a
price in a hidden field on an HTML page, but then, I've seen a lot
that's hard to believe during my past few years of consulting.

All the best,
