I have a zip code validation code for my Magento store, it verifies certain countries zip codes. For instance Germany needs to have at least 5 digits or else it comes up with an error.  However when you go beyond 5 digits there is no error.  I need an error to report if its beyond 5 digits. Also attached to the code is for Romania that requires 7 digits.

                var bill_country_id = 'DE';

                var bill_country = $('billing:country_id');

                var element = $('billing:postcode');

                if (element && ('' != element.value) && (bill_country_id == bill_country.value)) {

                     if (!element.value.match(/[0-9]{5}/)) {

                        return false;

                    }

                }

                var bill_country_id = 'RO';

                var bill_country = $('billing:country_id');

                var element = $('billing:postcode');

                if (element && ('' != element.value) && (bill_country_id == bill_country.value)) {

                     if (!element.value.match(/[0-9]{7}/)) {

                        return false;

                    }

                }

                     return true;

           }]

i replaced
if (!element.value.test(/[0-9]{5}/)) {


from the orginal

if (!element.value.match(/[0-9]{5}/)) {


but does not work, do I need to do anything with the files that you linked over? include them?
