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()

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.
