I am having users type in a url in a text box... When a user clicks a button, the users will go to the site entered into the test box... Here is part of the code:

     <form name="directForm" method="post" action="http://" onsubmit="setTarget(this);">

        <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" class="addressbar">
           <tr>
               <td valign="middle" style="padding-left: 5px; padding-bottom: 3px;" nowrap>
                   <span class="intranetbodytext" style="">
                       <b>Intranet Address:</b>
                   </span>
               </td>
               <td width="325" style="padding-top: 5px; padding-bottom: 4px;" valign="middle">


           <input type="text" name="address" maxlength="2082" value="Type a URL here" onfocus="clearDefault(this);this.className='bodytext';"                

                disabled="disabled" style="width: 325px;" class="intranetaddress">

               </td>
               <td  style="padding-top: 2px; padding-left: 5px;" valign="middle" nowrap>
                <input type="submit" name="go" value="GO" onclick="submitDirectAccess( this.form );" disabled="disabled" class="gobutton">
               </td>
               <td valign="middle" style="padding-bottom: 3px;" nowrap>

              </td>
           </tr>
         </table>
