    Script for Form validator in head causes error

    Buddy D

      When I use the Window/Behaveiors/ to create a form validator, Dreamweaver CS5 puts script in the Head of page, and seems to work ok. But when I validate page with W3c it says there are errors with code and as Dreamweaver created this I have no idea what to do to put right, so could someone please help. This is code generated by Dreamweaver, all other pages have past with flying colors!

       

      <script type="text/javascript">
      function MM_validateForm() { //v4.0
        if (document.getElementById){
          var i,p,q,nm,test,num,min,max,errors='',args=MM_validateForm.arguments;
          for (i=0; i<(args.length-2); i+=3) { test=args[i+2]; val=document.getElementById(args[i]);
            if (val) { nm=val.name; if ((val=val.value)!="") {
              if (test.indexOf('isEmail')!=-1) { p=val.indexOf('@');
                if (p<1 || p==(val.length-1)) errors+='- '+nm+' must contain an e-mail address.\n';
              } else if (test!='R') { num = parseFloat(val);
                if (isNaN(val)) errors+='- '+nm+' must contain a number.\n';
                if (test.indexOf('inRange') != -1) { p=test.indexOf(':');
                  min=test.substring(8,p); max=test.substring(p+1);
                  if (num<min || max<num) errors+='- '+nm+' must contain a number between '+min+' and '+max+'.\n';
            } } } else if (test.charAt(0) == 'R') errors += '- '+nm+' is required.\n'; }
          } if (errors) alert('The following error(s) occurred:\n'+errors);
          document.MM_returnValue = (errors == '');
      } }
      </script>
