Javascript not validating

Can someone shed light on why this line will not validate?

					<input type="hidden" name="n_submitted" document.getElementById('newsjoin').action="" ; value="TRUE" />

"document.getElementById" is javascript, not HTML or an HTML attribute.  It also won't do anything there because there is no way to execute it in a 'hidden' element even if you had a correct coding.

You cannot fire javascript without an event.

if you are trying to set the action on submit, the there should be an onsubmit event on the submit button or as the action of the form.
