Email validating form
Email Oversight provides a suite of tools to help make email list management a painless task, through the use of custom forms, file import and synchronization features, data append capabilities, suppression list management, as well as custom report generation, and file export.All this is available with the support of a high-performance API, which provides clients with a vast array of possibilities when it comes to their email list management needs. Different browsers may mark the input box in some way (Firefox 4 Beta adds a red box-shadow by default), display a warning (Opera) or even prevent the form from being submitted if this field has no value.Hopefully these behaviours will converge in future releases.Also each browser has a slightly different default behaviour.
Before you ask, and someone always does, these examples will currently work in the following browsers: Safari 5, Chrome 6, Opera 9, Firefox 4 Beta and the i Phone/i Pad.For these examples we have created our own valid/invalid CSS formatting to override the browser default.

The option of using pure HTML, sometimes with a touch of CSS, to complement Java Script form validation was until recently unthinkable.
Sure there have been all kinds of whacky plug-ins over the years aimed at achieving this, but never a single standard that we could work towards.For a more detailed introduction to HTML5 form validation you can find some great articles linked under References below.
