Thank You!! Thank You!

This worked Brilliantly. Very effective and working well.

One thing that has cropped up though in testing, is that if someone puts in the currency symbol (in this case £ for GBP) in the Donation Amount field it gets rejected / error by PayPal on submission.

So the minimum 5.00 works fine
But if minimum £5.00 is entered (as some people might naturally do) it gets an error screen on PayPal, which I have attached.

Would you have any thoughts or suggestion of how I might be able to rectify? Would there be a bit of function code that could strip out £ symbol if used maybe?

Thanks and again and any further help or suggestions anyone could give would be greatly appreciated.

You can add a validation condition.
It tests that only numbers with or without a decimal character are entered.
function ff_donationAmount_validation(element, message)

    var ex  = /(^-?\d\d*[,\.]?\d*$)/;
	if (!ex.test(element.value)) {
        if (message=='') message = "Please enter donation amount without symbol.";
        return message;
    } // if	
    else if (element.value == "" ) {
        if (message=='') message = "Please enter donation amount.\n"
        return message;
    } // if
   else if ( Number(element.value) <5) {
        if (message=='') message = "Please enter donation amount greater than 5.00.\n"
        return message;
    } // if
    return '';
} // ff_donationAmount_validation
