While you may be right (it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong, even 
the first time today!), as best I can tell these are the same.  I'll 

I have a set of groups that act kind of like "sub-cards" on a single 
card.  Only one of these groups is visible at a time (a set of buttons 
on the side selects the "current group" and makes the previous group 
invisible and the selected one visible.

Both groups have a field, xxx_code where "xxx" is either "completed_by" 
or "assessed_by."  They also both have an adjacent field called xxx_name.

The script for both of these fields is IDENTICAL.  There is no other 
processing (at least as far as I can see) between pressing tab on the 
field and the closeField message.  Yes, I'm sure there are rawkeydown 
messages and such that go on but I don't handle any of those messages so 
they should be being handled by the engine.

I'm really at a loss as to why one handler works (i.e., gives me the 
number I entered) and the one that returns "empty."  Very strange!
