I provided a solution for a VBS thread regarding fraction simplification - thread329-1697266: Creating a Fraction Simplifying Calculator. The solution accepts two values and simplies them as if they were the nominator and the denominator; works beautifully when run as a VBS. However, when implemented into an HTML, the values are read properly but processed in a truncated form. What gives!?

A: 5 B: 25, read as 5 and 25 but processed as 5 and 2
A: 11 B: 4, read as 11 and 4 but processed as 1 and 4
A: 4867 B: 7, read as 4867 and 7 but processed as 4 and 7

You can see how this can present a HUGE problem. Here is a simplified cut/paste ready instance that demostrates the "error"


	<script language="vbscript"> 
		sub process()
			a = txt1.value
			b = txt2.value
			if (a > b) then
				msgbox "Apple"
				msgbox "Banana"
			end if
		end sub
	A: <input id="txt1" type="text" value=""/><br>
	B: <input id="txt2" type="text" value=""/><br>

	<input type="button" value="Simplify Fraction" onClick="process()"/>



RE: input values are truncated

Hint: String value "7" is greater than string value "4867"
