Please, please, please, DON'T do client-side validation... I know, I know,
it's fast. However, it's unreliable, especially if you don't maintain the
javascript yourself. I'm always having to replace the javascript stuff
eventually  . . . 

You also can't deal adequately with check box type input (browser's behave
differently, for instance, sending name=on, which you have to validate
later, in any case) . . .
