Hi experts, this should be an easy one

All I'm trying to do is run a function when someone clicks on a button, and I don't want to have to embed the function in the INPUT tab

<HTML>
<BODY>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT language="Javascript">
Function cmdSearch_Click()
{
Alert("I was clicked")
}
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>

<BODY>
<H1>Search Facility</H1>
<HR>
<FORM Name="frmSearch">
Enter the Surename:
<INPUT TYPE="Text" Name="txtName" Size=10><INPUT Type="Button" Name="cmdSearch" VALUE="Search">
</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>

So when I click on cmdSearch nothing happens

if I change the INPUT tag thus

<INPUT Type="Button" Name="cmdSearch" VALUE="Search" onclick=cmdSearch_Click()>

I get Error on page :(
