// The Syntactic Validation error framework.
//
// This is the version that was brought from the Florida Democratic Party.  We
// had a bunch, but this one was the rough draft version.
//
// It relies on the DOM model to be available so the the form definition
// from which the validation framework is called provides the information
// necessary to do the validation.  The form is properly generated by
// buildForm.php
