I saw a couple solutions that seem to anwser this exact question, yet none of the solutions seem to be working.

So I'm using this as my onSubmit inside the <form> tag at the top

onSubmit="return validateForm();"

I'm also using this as my submit button

<input TYPE="image" class="submit-button" src="/images/signup.gif" NAME="update_settings.x">

The validation javascript I'm using works fine in FF2 and has worked in IE previously, so I'm not too worried about that. I just can't get IE7 to even attempt to execute the javascript. Is there any reason validateForm function wouldn't get called here?

The problem, ironically, was that I was using this standalone version of IE7 for testing (since I already have IE8), and it apparently doesn't behave quite the same as the regular IE7. I've tested on other IE7 machines, and it works just fine.
