Form not validating correctly

Form not validating correctly

I have a form (see attached file) which is using the validation toolkip to make all four visible form fields required. It's on the onsubmit property. But - it's submitting without any validation at all. I am using an included header file, which includes the <head> tags as well as the <body> tag. Is this causing the issue? Please see attached file. I don't want to use a DW template with this site as I have three separate logins and page formats. Thanks!

Your using Client side validation, I would recommend using server side validation instead. Client side validation is very easy to get around by disabling Javascript in the browser.

server Validation is much more reliable.

Edit the server Validation that is on the page and add a required condition for each of the form elements.
