There are all sorts of other things you can do but the easiest is just the following

<input type="radio" name="contactMe" id="ContactMeYes" value="Yes">&nbsp;<label for="ContactMeYes">Yes</label>

<input type="radio" name="ContactMe" onClick="getElementById('hiddenDiv').style.display='block';" id="ContactMeNo" value="No">&nbsp;

<div id="hiddenDiv" style="display:none;">
<label for="ContactMeNo">No <br>
(please specify)</label>
<input type="text"  name="ContactMeSpecify" id="ContactMeSpecify" value="" maxlength="255" size="30" style="width: 200px;">
</div>

<input type="radio" name="ContactMe" onClick="getElementById('hiddenDiv').style.display='block';" id="ContactMeNo" value="No">&nbsp;
<label for="ContactMeNo">No <br></label>
<div id="hiddenDiv" style="display:none;">

(Notice you've got several syntax errors and typos in your listing!)

This is how we do it:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Radio buttons</title>

<script type="text/javascript">
function checkme(ele){
	var inputbox = document.getElementById("ContactMeSpecify");
	if(ele.value=="Yes"){
		inputbox.style.display="block";
	}else{
		inputbox.style.display="none";
	}
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<label><input type="radio" name="contactMe" id="contactMeYes" value="Yes" onClick="checkme(this);"/>Yes</label>
<label><input type="radio" name="contactMe" id="contactMeNo" value="No" onClick="checkme(this);"/>No</label><br>

<input type="text" name="ContactMeSpecify" id="ContactMeSpecify" value="" maxlength="255" size="30" style="width: 200px;display:none;">

</body>
</html>

designatedinistailiser:

the label "please specify" is showing without.  I want it to show only if the click yes.   Pls adjust the code below.


<input type="radio" name="contactMe" id="contactMeYes" value="Yes" onClick="checkme(this);"/>&nbsp;<label for="ContactMeYes">Yes</label>
                                          <input type="radio" name="contactMe" id="contactMeNo" value="No" onClick="checkme(this);"/>No</label>
                                          &nbsp;&nbsp;<br>
                            Please specify
                                          <input type="text" name="ContactMeSpecify" id="ContactMeSpecify" value="" maxlength="255" size="30" style="width: 200px;display:none;">

when the event "onSubmit" returns false (which is delegated in that second function), the form is NOT sent to the server. That's how you go about form validation in JS. (without jQuery... with jQuery you've got a lot more options and functionality).
