I have two combo boxes .. Status & Children .. When we open the html file, the value of Status is "Single" & Children field is disabled .. so I want that when If I select "Married" or any other value except "Single", the Children field should not be disable.

<html>
<head>
<title>Recruitment Application</title>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
function onFieldFocus(element) {
    if (element.disabled) {
         element.blur();
    }
}

function onPageLoad() {
    document._Recruitment.Children.disabled=true;
}

function disable_enable()
{
     if (document._Recruitment.Status.value=="Single")
     {
    document._Recruitment.Children.disabled=true;
    alert("done");
     }  
}
// -->
</script>

</head>
<body text="#000000" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" onload="onPageLoad()">

<form method="post" action=".." name="_Recruitment">

<table border=0>
 <tr>
  <td colspan=2>      Marital Information  </td>
 </tr>
 <tr>
  <td><font size="2" face="Tahoma">      </font>&nbsp</td>
  <td><font size="2" face="Tahoma">      </font>&nbsp</td>
 </tr>
 <tr>
  <td><font size="2" face="Tahoma">      </font>Marital Status: </td>
  <td><font size="2" face="Tahoma">      </font><font size="2" face="Tahoma">
<select name="Status" onchange="disable_enable()">
<option>Single
<option>Married
<option>Divorced
<option>Widowed</select>
</font>  </td>
 </tr>
 <tr>
  <td><font size="2" face="Tahoma">      </font>No. of Children: </td>
  <td><font size="2" face="Tahoma">      </font><font size="2" face="Tahoma">
<select name="Children" onfocus="onFieldFocus(this)">
<option>0
<option>1
<option>2
<option>3
<option>4
<option>5</select>
</font>  </td>
 </tr>
</table>
<br><table border=0>
 <tr>
  <td><font size="2" face="Tahoma">   </font></td>
  <td><font size="2" face="Tahoma">      </font><input type=submit value="submit" class=btn>&nbsp<input type=reset
