ok, I am working on an assignment (yes, school work) we are just being introduced to javascript. I have a contact page that I am trying to create an alert if the user tries to submit form without entering an email address. but it is not working. I have been staring at this for over an hour and can not find the problem. I am an online student and my teacher has not responded to my emails and this is due tonight. Can someone take a look and let me know if you can see my problem?

} //end if

} // end function validateForm
