Sounds like a simple while loop might do the trick.

var isValid = false;

function enterForecasts(form)
       // parse the document to a DOM-tree
       var documentObj = loadDocument("sampledata.xml");

       // bind the document data to the form

       while(!isValid) {
      	 // show the form to the user until it is validated successfully
       	// bind the form's data back to the document;


       // save the DOM-tree back to an XML file, the makeTargetURI
       // function makes a modified filename so that the
       // original document is not overwritten
       saveDocument(documentObj, makeTargetURI(documentURI));


function validateForm(form) {
	//pseudo code
	//do validation stuff
	if(validates) {
