Go to web address javascript html

P: 1
HI all Im new to this so forgive my ignorance. so here goes my question I've been researching for a while but havent found what i need.
What Im need is a javascript that will make a form box that the visitor can put a web address in and when they hit the submit button it will take them to the website they entered. the closes i got is this:

<form name='site'>
<input type='text' name='url'/>
<input type='submit' value='Go!' onclick=" l.value"/>

but when i try it the addres bar does say "" but nothing happens. I know im doing somethin wrong i jus was hoping someone out there could help me with that. I can write a script that will take someone to a predetermined website when they hit the button:

<script type="text/javascript">
function locate()


<input type="button" onclick="locate()" value="New location">


but i am looking for a way where the visitor can here the catch what i really need is to combine these two concepts so that what the visitor sees it just the form box and the button but what going on in the backround is[ form box here] [go btn] so when they put in lets say "services" it will take what in the script and add /services to the address so they will get pointed to so thats what i needed help with. I would really be truly grateful for any help i could get. Thanks in advance...

The correct form of your code is:

<form name='site'>
<input type='text' name='url'/>
<input type='button ' value='Go!' onclick=""/>
