Validation Not Working

Hi, I am working in dreamweaver CS3. That's where I built the form. I am adding Spry Validation to the fields, setting up the preferences and when I upload its not working. Yes, I have also uploaded the Spry files to the server. Can you suggest what I am doing wrong?

The form is at:

I presently have validate on question 1. I had it on every question but removed it when the error messages were just appearing.

Please advise.

you have a few problems going on. Spry is based on javascript, for the spry validation to work correctly, your form element names must conform to javascript variable naming rules:

1) Names may only contain letters and numbers. the only exception is the underscore, "_", character.

2) names may not begin with a number.

you have form elements that begin with numbers:
<input id="00N60000001n0nN" maxlength="80" name="00N60000001n0nN" size="20" type="text" />

and the submit button has "{}" in the name:
<input type="image" value="Submit" name="{Button_Name}" src="../pic/participate/pic/submit2.gif" height="27" width="130" />

these are causing javascript errors to occur when trying to validate. I also think the name debug is invalid:
<input type="hidden" name="debug" value="0" />
