This is a very interesting article I found on the W3C Lessons website, and I thought I would share it.  Extremely useful!

Hi Ragi,

Thanks for sharing.

We do have the built in isValidEmail function in CMS Builder to check that an email entered if in a valid email format:

if (!@$_REQUEST['email'])                   { $errorsAndAlerts .= "You must enter your email!<br/>\n"; }
else if(!isValidEmail(@$_REQUEST['email'])) { $errorsAndAlerts .= "Please enter a valid email (example: user@example.com)<br/>\n"; }

But that third party service does a whole lot more validation.

Nice!
