I hate myself sometimes too since I've done it to myself Big Grin | :-D

A good human interface, for us pathetic humans Smile | :) , requires a lot of thought and often, coding. It often starts with database design; no spaces in credit card numbers, no dashes in SS#s and phone number requirements for SMS that accept 18005551212 as the only format.

I love the "Enter your SS#" so you type in xxx-xx-xxxx and then get a popup saying only numbers are valid. Why didn't you set it to accept only numbers or drop the dashes, turkey? Forgot to do it, ran out of time, or maybe even some hate, lol.

It's getting a bit better as more tools have easier formatting settings available prior to running data validation on the good ole submit button.

But there remains a lack of data standardization in the industry and allowing il0O or even things like nw next to each other in some fonts is ugly. But often, it's the deck we're forced to play with.
