Submitting multiple forms on one page

I have inherited a table where each row is a <form>

Each of these rows has only four columns, those being:
1) Item number
4) Quantity (blank textbox to fill in)
3) Description
4) Add link (to add just this one item.

That works fine but, now they want to have a submit button at the top
of the page, that when clicked, will submit every form whose quantity
has a value.

I have been searching, reading, and trying everything I could find
(I'm not a javascript programmer) to no avail.

Is this even possible? How can I accomplish this.

It doesn't make sense to do this. Each form can return a document. What
should a browser do with them all?

Rewrite the document to use a single form, and have the server-side script
do the work.

Submitting a form on a web page has the same effect as clicking a link.
It will take you away from that page and on to the one specified by the
form (or determined by its action).

Theoretically you could submit all the forms on the page by writing ...

for (i=0; i<document.form s.length; i++) {

... the problem is that you might as well just try and click all the
links on the page at the same time instead ;)

The solutions are either to (tidier) rewrite the page to use only one
form or (less modification of current code) call a function which puts
the details of all the current forms into a new single one. The former
would be the preferable one.

Hi, I have a rather long form that I don't want people submitting unless they are absolutely sure they are ready. I figured the easiest way to prevent an accidental form submission by way of hitting of the enter key was to simply not have a submit button, instead going for a regular anchor which calls a javascript confirmation box and then submits the form.

Totally hacked off here. I've written a user control that contains a text box, a required field validator and a button (these being the cornerstone of a search facility), all as ASP.Net server controls. The user clicks the button, and server-side code does a redirect to a search page, appending the search expression to the URL. Great, I thought, let's move on. I then wrote an mailing list page which included the aforementioned user...

I have a page that makes use of a tiny/hidden IFRAME that becomes triggered to load HTML into a SPAN element (via .innerHTML). The SPAN expands to display a form that then needs to be validated with javascript residing in the main window before submitting. I use an onclick from a button below the form to start the validation and submission. The page works fine in IE, but in FireFox I just can't get it to submit - the FireBug debugger states:...
