Hello Bleeping Computer,
I am building a web site that needs a few forms. When you click the send button nothing happens at all. There are two pages of code-the "get a quote" page that contains the form elements and javascript at the bottom. The the PHP code, I will list them below:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="application/xhtml+xml; charset=UTF-8" />
<meta name="generator" content="Boss Limo of Crown Point Indiana" />
<title>Get a Quote</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen, print, projection" href="common.css"></link>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ie_noclick.js"></script>

<style type="text/css" media="screen, print, projection">
#quoteform fieldset *:last-child {
margin-bottom: 0;

#quoteform fieldset {
border: none;

#quoteform p {
margin: 0px;

#quoteform {
visibility: visible;
position: absolute;
left: 5px;
top: 480px;
z-index: 6;
width: 486px;

#quotetext {
visibility: visible;
position: absolute;
left: 27px;
top: 445px;
z-index: 4;
width: 376px;

#formarea {

visibility: visible;
position: absolute;

top: 476px;
z-index: 4;

Alright here's the problem.

<input type="button" class="button" 
value="Send" name="B1" onclick="java script:validateForm()" />

You need to join the words java and script. Like this:

<INPUT type="button" class="button" value="Send" name="B1" onclick="java script:validateForm();">

SORRY! I tried to fix that, but there was a glitch and I couldn't.

<INPUT type="button" class="button" value="Send" name="B1" onclick="validateForm();">
