please see what is wrong with my JS form validation

Hi,

My code below is ignoring the validation and sending to the server.
Can someone please see why this is happening?

<html>
<head><title>An event</title>

<script type="text/javascript">

function checkForm() {

if (document.getElementById("name1") == "" ||
      document.getElementById("name1") == null) {
      alert("Please enter your name");
      return (false);      
      }
      else {
      return (true);
}
}



</script>
</head>
 <body>

 <form onSubmit="return checkForm(this)" action="post.php" method="post">
 <label><b>Type your name here : </b></label>
 <input type="text" id="name1"/><br />
 <input type="Submit" /><input type="reset" value="Clear" />
 

 </form>
</center>
</body>
</html>
