I would Like to write a function that validates the lenght of a field (Textbox).
ex:
<input type="TextBox" name="Field1" value="" onblur="ValidateLength(10);" > 
ValidateLength function should return a false if the value of field has more than 10 chars.

<input type="TextBox" name="Field1" value="" OnKeyPress="AllowNumbersOnly();" > 

function AllowNumbersOnly(){
   if ((event.keyCode < 48) || (event.keyCode > 57))event.returnValue = false;
}

This only works in IE 3 and Above
