Needs help with newsletter form html, css, javascript,mailman script

I am trying to configure the newsletter field form on my website to work with mailman newsletter script which is a thirdparty script installed on my server.

heres my code so far:

         <form id="newsletter" method="post" action="">
            <div class="bg">
              <input name="email" class="input" type="text" value="Type Your Email Here">
            <a href="javascript:{}" onclick="document.getElementById('newsletter').submit(); return false;" class="button">Subscribe</a> </div>

when i click the subscribe button on the webpage it loads the url from action in the browser address but the entire page just freezes at that point and nothing is active on the webpage any more....

Can someone please check my html,css,javascript and make sure its correct?

Thank you!

Did you remember to switch out, "" in the url "" with your actual domain name?
