Hi Bill, As a New Zealander, I welcome you creating an International option for your application! :) Could you add an 'outside of the US' option to your state dropdown? For this option you could then automagically make a 'country' input box appear. Also - if the user is outside the US please don't mandate a zip / area code - not all countries have or need them - NZ only implemented area codes this year (!).

This data is important as bills are sent by mail. The previous form was a free-form entry and as such the old data had a large number of data entry errors and inconsistencies. So, after discussion with the client, and the client insisting that only US addresses would need to be entered, I used a drop down list for state and I have an AJAX request on the zip code that will lookup the city and state based on the zip code. Of course, now they have a user with a Canadian address. It's still very rare to have a non-US address -- 1 in 30,000 at this point ;) So, I'm looking for examples of forms where I can still use the stronger validation on US zip codes, but also provide a way to allow non-US users to enter an address.
