> All the Javascript validation functions, like validateRequired, do not check to
> see if the field that is being validated actually exists on the form.  In other
> words, they do not do a null check.  I know you may be thinking that if the
> field is null, then there should be no validation done on that field.  However,
> I have many pages that have one or more fields that may or may not be rendered
> on the page based on whom is logged in.  If they are rendered, then they must be
> validated; if not, then they obviously do not need to be validated.  So
> basically, I had to change the javascript functions to ignore fields that are
> null so they will be validated if they exist and ignored if they do not.  The
> current code throws a javascript error if they field does not exist.  This seems
> like a bug to me.  Basically, all I do is the following in the looping of the
> validated fields, after the field is declared:
> if (field == null) {
>   continue;
