Thanks Jeff,
from a fan with limited JS knowledge.  Following your recommendations,
I was wondering if I could possibly call an onSubmit event from within a
script, too. I tried this, but without luck:

function noInput() {
if (document.f.pw.value.length > 0)
 return true;
else {
 alert('Bitte benutzen Sie die Tastatur zur Eingabe Ihres Passworts.');
 return false;

document.f.pw.onSubmit = noInput;

What is my mistake?
