there are a couple of ways of validating your id field, you can pass it in (as n in this case) returns boolean true / false when called.

function isNumber(n) {
  return !isNaN(parseFloat(n)) && isFinite(n);
// or since you should be able to find your id field 
function isNumber() {
  var id = document.myform.id.value;
  return !isNaN(parseFloat(id)) && isFinite(id);
