Javascript Reset function

Cannot get javascript reset function to work in an html pge. It works in a simple test script BUT NOT in my regular page. I would attach the html, but this process does not allow.

Hi, you gave the image the name "reset" which prevents the function to work.
reset is a function name

Change it like this
<img src="images/reset_orange.jpg" name="img_reset" onMousedown="do_reset
();" border="0"></td>

or delete the  name="reset" part if you don't need to address the image

this is how a reset button works in a form ,ie it will set the form field values back to the default values

<form>
 <input type="text" value="hello">
 <input type="text">
 <input type="submit">
 <input type="reset">
</form>

The only thing I can think of is that the reset button is outside the form tags. Without seeing the code it is impossible to see what is wrong, I am sure you understand this.

While you are at it, check the source on the web and make sure it contains only what you intended.  Many 'helpful' programs (Norton's firewall, for example) add code that prevent other code from executing properly.
