What about my last comment, stated bellow, you made no comments about my
question WHAT IS THE USE OF ENFORCING ACTION IF I CAN CIRCUNVENT IT WITH
ACTION=''?

Bellow my stated question.

As it is mandatory to specify an ACTION within a form field and I don't want
to change much of my coding, I changed the action to
<form name='myForm' action='' onSubmit=' return CheckData(this.form)'
method='post'>
Notice action='', this is just to comply with the way you validate but the
form is taking no action, the action is taken by the onSubmit.
I think this is absurd, what is the point of validating (and enforcing) that
there is an action if in reallity there is no action taken?
Just to comply with some kind of STANDARD that you can overtake this way?
