The apply10-1.html file is a partially completed HTML file for the Crab Apple Heights Elementary
School that you will use for this exercise. You will use JavaScript to create a scrolling message and validate
three text fields: parent or guardian name, cell phone, and e-mail address. The parent name and cell phone
fields must not be blank. The e-mail address must include an @ sign for a valid e-mail address. You must
add the event handler in the <body> tag to call the scrolling message function and the event handler in the
Submit button to call the validate function. Figure 10-41 shows the Apply Your Knowledge Web page as it
should be displayed in a browser after the JavaScript has been added.
