Having fun with jquery -- Numbers to words

Having some fun with jquery, its cool btw… Type in some numbers in the input box, (it should be in focus when u load this page, if not well u know who to blame - jquery of course, not me :-P) And if you (un)knowingly type in something other than a number, it should tell you whats wrong. Then click “Convert to words” and you’ll get your number in words… one in Indian number system and another one in international standard. And, if you are really trying this out, you can use keyboard enter, escape.. i bound them to calculate and hide the results etc.

Just some plain short fun :)

[you can use enter and escape]
Enter a number:

And yeah, of course, here’s the code (use this link to convert ur javascript into blogger friendly code):
