You are getting errors in validation because there are syntax errors in the code snippet.
Be careful to close brackets and quotation marks in the code.
There is '}' missing after 'return returnValue;' in the javascript function.
Also in the line

<input type="password" name="txtUserName id="txtPassword" size="12" />

" missing after txtUserName

Further you have not change the name for the password input field. It is still txtUserName but should be txtPassword because the value in the 'name' attribute is used in javascript and at the serverside

The code should be something like

action="registration.aspx"

is used to indicate the page where the control will go when the form is submitted. In this case it is a page called 'registration.aspx'. It can contain server side validations as well as business logic like database talks and control flows.

The error that the file 'registration.aspx' is not found could be because the file is not present in the proper location on the web server.

Some good online resources on javascript are,
http://www.w3schools.com/js/js_intro.asp
http://www.htmlgoodies.com/beyond/javascript/
http://www.javascriptkit.com/javatutors/primer1.shtml

I am also not sure if there is any legitimate site that offers free download of the ebook - Javascript : Complete Reference

registration.aspx is a ASP.net file. I do not have much idea about .net Framework so cant help on how to handle the data at the server end.
