    Hi!
    How can I create on my site an error message when the user submits an invalid zip code?
    For example, in this site: http://www.carinsurancequotes.com , if I submit the zip code 99999 I get an error message: Please enter a valid zip code.

    This is the code on my site:

    Code:
    <form action="http://the next page" method="get" name="form">
    <input type="text" name="zipcode" maxlength="5" id="zipcode" />
    <br />
    
    <input type="submit" name="search" id="button" value=""/>
    </form>
    Thanks,
    Steve

    You'd probably start with something like this and then check the zip code against the database to ensure that you have a valid US zip code (or not).

    Alternatively, a regular expression would work, but not for that particular zip code, as that particular zip code would validate as a 5-digit numeric expression.
