Agreed.   Most of us on here know this, but the average consumer does not.
Moreover, if you're collecting city/state info, you really shouldn't 
need to collect timezone data unless you plan to cookie the user to 
display the proper time on their 'cart' local to them.

If I disable javascript, and submit the form, it shows the form again, 
with no error message at all.
Are you running a back end check along with the JS prompt?

Ultimately, you can't rely on JS to be your form checker.  It needs to 
be done serverside.   The JS is nice to have on top of the back end though.
