Avoid form Validation

I would like  this script to work without the validation. So that when the user has finished entering the line and press return the url is launched. Like the second script that do just that but doesn't work on Internet explorer 3.The first one does.

Here is the jump script and form.(This one works on every browser)


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!-- JavaScript begins...
function jump (page) {
if(page.substring(0,7)!="http://")page = "http://" + page
      window.location = page;
}
// JavaScript ends -->
</SCRIPT>


<FORM NAME="URLframe">
    <TABLE BORDER="0" ALIGN="CENTER">
      <TR>
        <TD VALIGN="MIDDLE" ALIGN="CENTER" WIDTH="607"><FONT SIZE="3" COLOR="#000000" FACE="VERANDA,ARIAL,HELVETICA"><B>http://</B></FONT><INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="Dest" SIZE="35" MAXLENGTH="50"></TD>
      </TR>
      <TR>
        <TD ALIGN="CENTER" WIDTH="607">
        <P><A HREF="JavaScript:jump(document.URLframe.Dest.value)"><IMG SRC="icons/gob.gif" BORDER="0" HEIGHT="20" WIDTH="60" ALT="GO Button"></A></P></TD>
      </TR>
    </TABLE></FORM>

Here is the script that work on Netscape only and perform the validation by return.

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--start stealth

 function GoToURL(j) {
  window.status=('Connecting....')
 
var URLis;
 URLis = document.URLframe.Dest.value
 
   if (URLis == "" || URLis.length <= 8)
           {
     j.value = "Try Again"
      alert('\nOops!\n\nYou must enter a valid URL');
         window.status=('Missing data or Invalid. Try again?.')
           }
    else
        {
 j.value = "Connecting to: http:\\" + URLis  
 var location=("http://" + URLis);
        this.location.href = location;

window.status=('Connecting to ' + URLis + '  Please wait........');
        }
        }
 //-->
</SCRIPT>

<FORM NAME="URLframe"
    ONSUBMIT="GoToURL(document.URLframe.Dest.value);return false;">
    <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="Dest" SIZE="12" MAXLENGTH="50"></FORM>

Thank you for your help.

I don't quite understand your question - why doesn't it work with IE?

And: how about commenting the validation code (putting a /* before the j.value = ... and a */ after the ...Try again?')  ?

The second script don't work in Mie3 due to use of
window.location.href
(href not supported by MIE3)
use
window.location instead.

so it should be something like this:

function GoToURL(j) {
window.status=('Connecting....')
var URLis;
URLis = document.URLframe.Dest.value
if(URLis.indexOf("http://")!=0) URLis="http://"+URLis;
j.value = "Connecting to: " + URLis
window.location = URLis;

window.status=('Connecting to: ' + URLis + ' Please wait........');
}
