Hi Tris,
passing your code through JSLint [1] will help you (most of the time) spot
out incorrect usages of JavaScript:

JSLint says:

Problem at line 2 character 41: Expected a conditional expression and
instead saw an assignment at:

if (document.addUser.inputName.value *=* inputDisplay) {

which clearly is the logic error behind your code.

<tip author="Volkan Özçelik" type="JavaScript">
JavaScript is not a strongly-type language. It's rather loose, prototypical
and functional.
This will make it harder to spot out js-related errors.

Make sure that you pass your javascript through Jslint (
http://www.jslint.com )

In the end you will spot out some hidden bugs and gain a leaner, structured
