   RE: [xml-dev] Are people really using Identity constraints specified in

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Incidentally, it happens less often nowadays, but just yesterday I made an online purchase from a US supplier who required me to enter a two-letter code in the "State" box and a numeric value in the "postal code" box, despite the fact that I had entered UK as the country; so of course I lied, and they now have my state recorded as "ZZ" and the postal code as 12345. They also required a ten-digit phone number. Which reinforces another of my arguments: the more validation you do, the more you force people to supply incorrect information.
