I understand your need to 'bug out of here'. Go, relax, have a brew!

Yea, I use onfocus/onchange (see
http://www.lkraemer.com/quote/estimator.asp), but if the onfocus event
itself changes the input value then onchange is not fired as expected. Thus
the onfocus/onblur route in this case. Seems to work OK. Maybe Jeff will
chime in here and point out any error of my ways.
