Below is my program that I have so far. I am having trouble trying to figure how to get my passcheck function to check and make sure what is entered into the password and password confirmation fields match before it submits the validate function giving an alert.

The other thing I need some help is getting the labels(ie. First Name) to match the behavior of the fields when nothing is entered changing to red and then when focusing the corresponding field go back to the original color.

	function passcheck( ){
		var pw1 = document.forms[ 0 ].password.value;
		var pw2 = document.forms[ 0 ].passcomf.value;
		
		if ( pw1 != pw2 ) {
			alert ("You did not enter the same new password twice. Please re-enter your password.");
			return false;
			}
	
	}


	function validate( ) {
		var errors = new Array( );
		
		for( var i = 0; i < document.forms[ 0 ].elements.length ; i++ ){
			if( document.forms[ 0 ].elements[ i ].type == "text" ) {
				if( document.forms[ 0 ].elements[ i ].value == "" ){
					errors.push( "The " + document.forms[ 0 ].elements[ i ].name + " field cannot be blank.\n");
					
					document.forms[ 0 ].elements[ i ].className = "in_error";
					
				}

			if( document.forms[ 0 ].elements[ i ].type == "select-one") {
