    Default Form validation

    As someone who is just getting into JS I am driving myself potty with this one.

    I have the following in place which just checks to make sure that the form fileds have entries. The html code I have cut down to the minimum.

    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    var empty = new Image(); empty.src = "/images/forms/required_fields/blankimage.gif";
    var haveerrors = 0;
    function showImage(imagename, imageurl, errors) {
    document[imagename].src = imageurl;
    if (!haveerrors && errors) haveerrors = errors;
    function validateForm(f) {
    haveerrors = 0;
    (f.fullname.value.length < 5) // validate full name length
    ? showImage("fullnameerror", "fieldempty_fullname.png", true)
    : showImage("fullnameerror", "blankimage.gif", false);
    ( < 1) // validate job title length
    ? showImage("companyerror", "fieldempty_companyname.png", true)
    : showImage("companyerror", "blankimage.gif", false);
    (f.title.value.length < 1) // validate company name length
    ? showImage("titleerror", "fieldempty_position.png", true)
    : showImage("titleerror", "blankimage.gif", false);
    ( <5 ) // validate email length
    ? showImage("emailerror", "fieldempty_email.png", true)
    : showImage("emailerror", "blankimage.gif", false);
    ( < 5) // validate phone number length
    ? showImage("phoneerror", "fieldempty_telephonenumber.png", true)
    : showImage("phoneerror", "blankimage.gif", false);
    return (!haveerrors);
    <form onSubmit="return validateForm(this);  ">
    <input name="email" type="text" class="focus" id="email" size="40" /><br>
    <img src="blankimage.gif" name=emailerror>
    What I would like to do is add some form of email validation like the one here:

    Or one like this (so that I could stop ones like and

    The ideal outcome would be that if a user does not enter any characters I can display a "please enter email address" image/message (not alert) and if they enter a silly email address then I can display a "please enter valid email address" image.

    Whilst I can get any of the scripts to work well independently I am having problems combining a couple as I am not that good with JS yet.

    Any help would be great.
