</forM>
<?php
$color="1";
}
}
?>

i think there is something wrong with the javascript, but im not sure. please help

Hi,

Firstly, do you have to use JavaScript to submit the form? This isn't especially useful for users who do not have JS enabled.

The problem I would think is because you have the element "markupcomplete" twice in your source code, on lines 24 and 25. It is possible that the JavaScript is trying to submit the input element, rather than the form.
