      Description

      MoodleQuickForm client validation javascript failure when element name contains a dash . Dashes are not allowed in javascript variable/function names and have to be escaped but are not escaped in getValidationScript. Consequently, the call to rule validation scripts for such elements fails and client side validation is not performed.
