i'll remove that - came from a php library i'm using.

unfortunatley Page valet only lets me give it a URL - i need an upload 
interface  (my webserver is for a telco's wap site and accessible on the 
internet)  So, i can't parse through there....  i'll have to hunt for some 
other server to host it on in order to validate it.

you have given me some confirmation that i'm not going nuts, and the <input 
format="...." ...> really is in the openwave dtd.
The page works as intended on the telco's phones, so i'm happy to leave it as 
is, but would be nice if it validated in the W3C validator, as my client 
holds it in high regard.
