Form submits with no validation

Form submits with no validation

I have in the past used Form Builder to apply Client validation to an existing form not built with Form Builder and it worked great, but suddenly it has stopped working at all. This form:
agendaprop_FB.html
submits with no validation other than filling out the server-suplied (non-Form Builder) Captcha data.

Can anyone tell me by looking at the source code what is happening to cause it to stop working? I can't figure out what is different in this file that is causing it to fail completely.

It looks like the Show validation Errors behavior has been removed from the onsubmit action of the form tag.

I have not edited the form in any way. Would something else be causing this? I tried uninstalling and re-installing the extension with the same result.

it could be that the captcha cgi is interfering with the javascript, does it work if you remove the captcha?

I would say no since the previous form this happened with had no captcha field. I can't figure it out...but I updated a site-wide menu (just a hand-coded unordered list, not a product of yours) and I got repeated errors (I am paraphrasing) that AdobeCS3_somefilepath_WAvalidation.js did not contain the function GetElementByDOM... sorry I didn't write down the exact error but I am hoping this may tell you something...I will try to duplicate what I did and write down the error
