The code is here..

Code:
// form validation function //
function validate(form) {
  var name = form.name.value;
  var email = form.email.value;
  var gender = form.gender.value;
  var message = form.message.value;
  var nameRegex = /^[a-zA-Z]+(([\'\,\.\- ][a-zA-Z ])?[a-zA-Z]*)*$/;
  var emailRegex = /^[\w-\.]+@([\w-]+\.)+[\w-]{2,4}$/;
  var messageRegex = new RegExp(/<\/?\w+((\s+\w+(\s*=\s*(?:".*?"|'.*?'|[^'">\s]+))?)+\s*|\s*)\/?>/gim);
  if(name == "") {
    inlineMsg('name','You must enter your name.',2);
    return false;
  }
  if(!name.match(nameRegex)) {
    inlineMsg('name','You have entered an invalid name.',2);
    return false;
  }
  if(email == "") {
    inlineMsg('email','<strong>Error</strong><br />You must enter your email.',2);
    return false;
  }
  if(!email.match(emailRegex)) {
    inlineMsg('email','<strong>Error</strong><br />You have entered an invalid email.',2);
    return false;
  }
  if(gender == "") {
    inlineMsg('gender','<strong>Error</strong><br />You must select your gender.',2);
    return false;
  }
  if(message == "") {
    inlineMsg('message','You must enter a message.');
    return false;
  }
  if(message.match(messageRegex)) {
    inlineMsg('message','You have entered an invalid message.');
    return false;
  }
  return true;
}
