Here's my code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<title>Form Test</title>
<script type="text/javascript">

  function checkForm(form) // Submit button clicked
    // check form input values

    form.myButton.disabled = true;
    form.myButton.value = "Please wait...";
    return true;

  function resetForm(form) // Reset button clicked
    form.myButton.disabled = false;
    form.myButton.value = "Submit";



<form method="POST"  onsubmit="return checkForm(this);">
<input type="submit" name="myButton" value="Submit">
<input type="button" value="Reset Button" onclick="resetForm(this.form);">



This should be a slam dunk in that I'm simply copying and pasting from this site:

But what you see above doesn't work and I don't know why. Can you help a brother out? What am I missing?
