FrontPage Textbox validation settings - Whitespace

Hi, I hope someone can help...

I've inserted a text box within a form on a web page (in FrontPage), in order to collect the user's name.

I have applied validation settings to allow a data type of text, and have ticked the boxes to allow both Letters and Whitespace. When testing the form, it could not be submitted until I removed the space between the first and last name, despite the fact that I have specified that Whitespace is allowed.

Does anyone know why?

Thanks

Thanks for the response, the code is below. The text box concerned is the first one - "Your Name". I can't see any difference between your code and this though....

<form method="POST" onsubmit="return FrontPage_Form1_Validator(this)" language="JavaScript" name="FrontPage_Form1" action="http:NOTE: REMOVED FOR POSTING PURPOSES THOUGH CORRECT">

Thanks again, it looks like it may be a server issue then. I'll hold back on awarding the points for a day, in case someone else has any ideas.
