I have this field below

     <tr bgcolor="#ECE9D8">
        <td style="width: 171px"><span class="style8"><strong>Account Number:</strong></span></td>
        <td style="width: 220px"><input id="Text20" style="width: 213px" type="text" / size="20" name="acctnum"></td>
What I want to do is AutoFormat the text entered by a user when they leave the textbox

Do if the user enters 5060012345609 OR 506001234569

IT SHOULD FORMAT ITSELF TO 50600-123456-09 OR 50600-123456-9
