DHTML: Submit form in a DIV tag returns a page not found error

<DIV onClick="document.form1.submit();">Test</DIV>

When I click on that particular DIV, it redirects me to a "undefined" page. That why i get a page not found error. But when I do a alert(document.form1.action) before the submit command. It returns the correct page. If I put the same javascript on a different control for e.g. a button, it works fine.
