Good point! I don't have the time to try it right now, but I guess one would
have to add some more checks to onBlur, onChange, or something to get the
complete solution. I'll try to come up with one later on to add as a tip, as
someone else suggested to me off-line.

Meanwhile, the thread has since opened up another question for me:

The siteexperts article, as well as several of the Google result pages,
recommended implementing various "custom behaviors" using an HTC file. I've
seen this technology briefly before, but am not well-acquainted with it. I
always thought it was a Microsoft-specific thing, but some of the pages I
looked at seem to indicate it's a CSS thing. It also seems to use XML. Can
someone explain briefly what it is, whether it is a standard, and how well
various browsers support it?
