re-read the statement in my original post:

> > the form doesn't work without JS enabled...

it is daft to:
- assume i meant something i explicitly did not say...
- allow the form to be submitted using *only* JS...
- using the 'button' input type, instead of 'submit', thereby requiring
the JS...

i know yours was a knee-jerk reaction, but it was the wrong one... i
don't give a rat's arse about the validation, just that i couldn't use
the damn form...
