Thanks for the info; I've spoken with someone who's gone through PCI compliance, and the issues can go far beyond just filtering form input. I've got a consultant working with me and will share whatever I learn in the next week, so that others might benefit.

> As far as the password is concerned, as long as you are just storing the hash of what the user enters, and then comparing the stored hash to the hash of what the user enters, you can do pretty much anything you want to the user's actual password entry, as long as you also did it to what they originally entered. So clean the password entry also.
