Hello eperts.
For the following script i get a message in firebug:

document.form1.sku.focus();
 
        if(form1.issubscription.value == 'yes') {
            document.getElementById("subscriptionfields").style.display = "block";
            }
      else
      {
            document.getElementById("subscriptionfields").style.display = "None";
      }
Element referenced by ID/NAME in the global scope. Use W3C standard document.getElementById() instead.

Any help?

i guess it is trying to say that rather than using names like "'issubscription", "sku", or "form1", use the id values and access the element using document.getElementById()

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

document.getElementById("sku").focus();
 
        if(document.getElementById("issubscription").value == 'yes') {
            document.getElementById("subscriptionfields").style.display = "block";

      else
      {

<<sku , issubscription are formfields>>
are they id values or name attribute values?

Ok.
I fixed it.I did use the code from chaituu but i add an id to the issubscription field because there was  only the name of the tag.
