Where do I put this script?  I put it every place I could think of and it didn't work.  Is there a space after //?

Put it just after your form.

Yes, there is a space, but it doesn't matter if you have one or not.
To be sure to get everything right, you can use copy&paste to get it into Notepad. Then remove the leading spaces.
