[thelist] Stopping a user submitting a form from the address bar using JS.

I've got a form on a page that uses JavaScript to validate the input.  This
form is submitted with a button calling a JS function:
<input type="button" value="Submit"

The button is not a 'submit' button because after the script has validated the
input, the script itself submits the form.  However, if I open up this page in
a browser (IE6) and type 'javascript:document.forms[0].submit()' (without the
'), it will bypass the validation and submit the form.  How can I stop this?

Thanks for any help,
