Still getting to gribs with javascript. I've tried a basic form validation but I can't seem to get what I'm doing to work. Anyone point out where I'm going wrong?

   <script type="text/JavaScript">
   function validate_this(){
     valid= true;
     if( document.signup.name.value == "" ){
       alert ( "Please input your name");
        valid= false; 
     if( document.signup.age.value == "" ){
       alert ("Please input your age");
       valid= false;
    return valid;   

   <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000" link="#0000FF" vlink="#800080" alink="#FF0000">
   <form name="signup" method="POST" action="signup.php" onSubmit="return validate_form ( );">
    <p>Name: <input type="text" name="name"></p>
    <p>Age: <input type="text" name="age"></p>
    <p><input type="submit" value="submit">   


Cheers for any help. [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /]

your onsubmit is calling validate_form but your function is called validate_this
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
