I have defined form field validation on a couple fields, but no validation is being done. Tested on IE4 and Netscape. Page in question can be seen by going to http://glsd.com/DejaVu/logon.htm and selecting "Register as a new user". "State" field should be validated.

The "state" field validation is checking for 2 alpha characters to be entered into the field. See the HTML source code at the URL given in the origianl question for details. The JavaScript code is there, as entered by FrontPage. The question is not how to write JavaScript, but rather why FrontPage has created code that is not being executed and what needs to be done in FrontPage to make it work.

Just had this whole longer answer typed out and E-E gave me a server error :(. Here we go again...

You are using FrontPage and a FrontPage componenet which requires FrontPage Extensions installed on your web server. You are not using JavaScript. Look at the generated HTML and you will see lots of references to WEBBOT. This is really a comment that's ignored by non FrontPage Servers. The validation occurs on the server and not the client. I would guess that either you aren't setup to be able to use FrontPage with your ISP or your ISP isn't configured to support FrontPage. Contact your ISP or Web Admin to verify, but I'd bet that's all it is. If you don't have FrontPage support and they won't do it, there are JavaScript solutions to what you want.

Let me know.
