[LON-CAPA-users] Significant digits in customresponse: "Submission not graded. Use more digits."

What I did for our labs was put a div around the whole problem with an id
of "pageWrap" and include the following CSS:

#pagewrap table{display:none;}

Feedback is displayed in a table, so that takes care of all of it.  It
also hides the Lon-Capa submit buttons so we provided our own, which was
ok because we also added some additional code into them to check for some
things we wanted to check for.  I suspect that there may be better ways of
doing this and in fact in some cases I'm making some refinements now, but
this has served our purposes.
