Hi Hans,

I am able to create a page named "1234" manually ... it's only when 
trying to create the page through Fox that the invalid page name error 

The beginning of the form is:

(:fox inventoryform #top target='{$$pagename}' redirect=1 
template=VehicleTemplates#newvehicle :)
|| '''Stock#:'''||(:input text pagename size=30:)

the objective being to have the page name the same as the stock #.  
Worst case scenario, I can set the input value to an alpha character and 
have them append the stock number to the alpha character, and use 
'A1234' as a naming scheme for the site.  If you'd like to look at the 
page directly, let me know and I'll email you the URL and password.
