Default date validation (again)

How do i stop someone entering a duff value then just hitting the 'enter' key to submit the form?

there is javascript, to ensure you enter in the correct format. but only if you tab to the button or click it.

function check_date(field){
var checkstr = "0123456789";
var DateField = field;
var Datevalue = "";
var DateTemp = "";
var seperator = "/";
var day;
var month;
var year;
var leap = 0;
var err = 0;
var i;
   err = 0;
   DateValue = DateField.value;
   /* Delete all chars except 0..9 */
   for (i = 0; i < DateValue.length; i++) {
      if (checkstr.indexOf(DateValue.substr(i,1)) >= 0) {
         DateTemp = DateTemp + DateValue.substr(i,1);
      }
   }
   DateValue = DateTemp;
   /* Always change date to 8 digits - string*/
   /* if year is entered as 2-digit / always assume 20xx */
   if (DateValue.length == 6) {
         DateValue = DateValue.substr(0,4) + '20' + DateValue.substr(4,2); }
   if (DateValue.length != 8) {
      err = 19;}
   /* year is wrong if year = 0000 */
   year = DateValue.substr(4,4);
   if (year == 0) {
      err = 20;
   }
   /* Validation of month*/
   month = DateValue.substr(2,2);
   if ((month < 1) || (month > 12)) {
      err = 21;
   }
   /* Validation of day*/
   day = DateValue.substr(0,2);
   if (day < 1) {
     err = 22;
   }
   /* Validation leap-year / february / day */
   if ((year % 4 == 0) || (year % 100 == 0) || (year % 400 == 0)) {
      leap = 1;
   }
   if ((month == 2) && (leap == 1) && (day > 29)) {
      err = 23;
   }
   if ((month == 2) && (leap != 1) && (day > 28)) {
      err = 24;
   }
   /* Validation of other months */
   if ((day > 31) && ((month == "01") || (month == "03") || (month == "05") || (month == "07") || (month == "08") || (month == "10") || (month == "12"))) {
      err = 25;
   }
   if ((day > 30) && ((month == "04") || (month == "06") || (month == "09") || (month == "11"))) {
      err = 26;
   }
   /* if 00 ist entered, no error, deleting the entry */
   if ((day == 0) && (month == 0) && (year == 00)) {
      err = 0; day = ""; month = ""; year = ""; seperator = "";
   }
   /* if no error, write the completed date to Input-Field (e.g. 13.12.2001) */
   if (err == 0) {
      DateField.value = day + seperator + month + seperator + year;
   }
   /* Error-message if err != 0 */
   else {
      alert("Incorrect Date: Please Enter the Date in Format 'DD/MM/YY'");
      DateField.select();
      DateField.focus();
   }
}

thats my existing javascript.

any ideas?
