Need customer input text box form for Mal's

I need to have a text box that the customer can enter a short line of text and have it pass to the Mal's cart. I have looked at sites that have this, and tried to copy the code they use, and paste it into the item dexcription, but I can't get it to work.
I am using the Multiple Options Add-to-Cart form and it works great.
I have read the posts on this forum about doing something similar, but can't figure out how to implement it on my site.
I just need a place for the customer to enter up to 20 characters and have this show in the checkout.
Can you give me a simplified way to do this?

It's in Mal's cart setup

To set up a customer text input field, just use the CUSTOMER MESSAGE in Mal's Cart Setup under MESSAGES AND GENERAL SETTINGS.

This issue is out of the realm of the XLEcom program. Sorry, but I do not have the time to spend on this issue.
