Hi!<BR>I'm having trouble getting the <asp:RequiredFieldValidator /> to display its error message text how i would like in the user's browser.<BR><BR>I have two problems. The first is that before the form is validated (when no error message need be displayed) the form control adds a non-breaking space character where the form control was evaluated on the server. This results in my page displaying wrongly. I'd like absolutely nothing to display unless the field is invalid.<BR><BR>The second is that the validation error message I want to display is automatically put in a <span> tag with inline style attributes such as style="color:red". I would much prefer to have no inline style attributes and instead set a css class to my error messages.<BR><BR>Can anybody help me with either of these problems?<BR>Thank you!
