Pacifying an input thingy.
So, I am working on a new ecommerce website, and it has an affiliate program, which I would like to set up and run, except it is asking users for their tax id, which seems like overkill since I am only going to pay in store credit. I would like to remove the request for the user's tax id, except I realize if I just remove it from one page, it's going to be missing it elsewhere in the program, so instead, I would like to assign a value to the tax id (just a dummy number or something (It's not any sort of key database value or anything)) and remove the prompt for the user to fill in.
The code in question reads:
<td class="item"><b>Tax ID#:</b><br /><input name="txtTaxId" type="text" id="txtTaxId" size="15" class="txtBoxStyle" value="[strTaxId]" maxlength=12> <img src="assets/templates/common/images/error2.gif" width="12" height="12"> (SSN# or EIN#)</td>
How do I tell it that the tax id is _________ and assign that value to whatever the important variable(s) is/are here, in place of this request.
Sorry if this is a stupid question--please see my username. Thanks for your help.
