Web Annoyance

Here's a good one - Holiday Inn's Priority Club web site requires a dash in Canadian postal codes e.g. S7N-2X8.

Why would this programmer decide to dream up their own unique postal code format? The only think I can think of is they didn't want to handle spaces, but that's pretty feeble.

There are standards for this kind of thing, why not use them?
