    Bug - Non valid characters

    The issue was caused by one of the form field names starting with a number.


    Interestingly if you do start with a number the system adds the letter ‘n’ before the number in the ‘xml’ file.


    So the field ‘100 Wool felt stack’ was fine




    However the field ‘£50 voucher @ the bramble patch’ caused the problem. This is because the £ sign is stripped for being neither a letter or a number but because the 5 was the second number an ‘n’ wasn’t added.



    Please add some javascript validation so that certain non valid charaters are not allowed at the start or make sure an 'n' is added universally

    Many thanks

    this applies to field name starting with


    or similar.

    Since there is no clear guide, have to find it the hard way.
