    Cannot Search html table


    I am having a problem. I have a HTML table on my webpage but I am having trouble searching it from my main homepage using a HTML form.

    The html form on the homepage is:
    <form method="post" action="http://www.example.com/sites/default/files/html_table.html"
    <input type="text" size="30" maxlength="1000" value="" id="textBoxSearch" onkeyup="tableSearch.search(event);" />
    <input type="submit" value="Search" onclick="tableSearch.runSearch();" />
    I have a search working fine on the html page and javascript functions conducting the search as shown here:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
    <title>JavaScript Search</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    body { font-family: Arial; font-size: 11px; }
    td { font-family: Arial; font-size: 11px; }
    th { font-family: Arial; font-size: 11px; background-color: #c8c8c8; }
    input { font-family: Arial; font-size: 11px; }
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    //define the table search as an object, which can implement both functions and properties
    window.tableSearch = {};
    //initialize the search, setup the current object
    tableSearch.init = function() {
    //define the properties I want on the tableSearch object
    this.Rows = document.getElementById('data').getElementsByTagName('TR');
    this.RowsLength = tableSearch.Rows.length;
    this.RowsText = [];
    //loop through the table and add the data to
    for (var i = 0; i < tableSearch.RowsLength; i++) {
    this.RowsText[i] = (tableSearch.Rows[i].innerText) ? tableSearch.Rows[i].innerText.toUpperCase() : tableSearch.Rows[i].textContent.toUpperCase();
    //onlys shows the relevant rows as determined by the search string
    tableSearch.runSearch = function() {
    //get the search term
    this.Term = document.getElementById('textBoxSearch').value.toUpperCase();
    //loop through the rows and hide rows that do not match the search query
    for (var i = 0, row; row = this.Rows[i], rowText = this.RowsText[i]; i++) {
    row.style.display = ((rowText.indexOf(this.Term) != -1) || this.Term === '') ? '' : 'none';
    //runs the search
    tableSearch.search = function(e) {
    //checks if the user pressed the enter key, and if they did then run the search
    var keycode;
    if (window.event) { keycode = window.event.keyCode; }
    else if (e) { keycode = e.which; }
    else { return false; }
    if (keycode == 13) {
    else { return false; }
    <body onload="tableSearch.init();">
    <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <input type="text" size="30" maxlength="1000" value="" id="textBoxSearch" onkeyup="tableSearch.search(event);" />
    <input type="button" value="Search" onclick="tableSearch.runSearch();" />
    <br />
    <table border="1" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0">
    <th>First Name</th>
    <tbody id="data">
    <td><a href="http://heathesh.com">http://heathesh.com</a></td>
    <td><a href="http://candicedavid.com">http://candicedavid.com</a></td>
    If anybody could help me please! I have run out of ideas
