Ok, so I am using the jquery ui range slider and I need a "+" to appear in my form field when the slider reaches the maximum value.  For example, my range is from 0 - 100000, so when the slider hits 100000, I want to see "100000+",but when I drop it to 99000 I want the plus sign to go away (I am stepping in intervals of 1000)

I need this to work with the jquery-ui-1.7.2.custom.min.js file you download at the ui site so I can use the theme I rolled.

Anyway, if you could look at my code and tell me what to add, you would be awesome.  Thanks for the help.
//this is what I have so far that works

<script type="text/javascript">
	$(function() {
			range: true,
			min: 0,
			max: 100000,
			step: 1000,
			values: [0, 100000],
			slide: function(event, ui) {
		$("#range_start").val( $("#slider-range").slider("values", 0));
		$("#range_end").val( $("#slider-range").slider("values", 1));

//body below

<div class="demo">

	<span class="paragraph">Find me all the ships betweeen
	<input name="start_range" type="text" class="table_text" id="start_range" size="7" maxlength="7" />
	<input name="end_range" type="text" class="table_text" id="end_range" size="7" maxlength="7" />
	metric tons dwt.

	<div id="slider-range"></div>

</div><!-- End demo -->
