At the very basic, the following will reset a radio button.

document.forms[formNameOrIndex].elements[elementNameOrIndex].checked =

For something alittle more generic, here's a function that'll take a form
object and reset all radio buttons it finds within that form:

function resetRadioButtons(oForm)
  var returnValue = false;
    for(var i = 0; i <= oForm.elements.length; i = i + 1)
      if(oForm.elements[i].type.toLowerCase() == 'radio')
        oForm.elements[i].checked = false;
    returnValue = true;
  return returnValue;

Place a call to this function at the bottom of your HTML document passing an
object reference to the associated form and that should take care of it.
