Default requiredfield validators issue


I have set a required field validators to the 2 controls on my login page[ Out of which 1 is a dropdown list ]
Dropdownlist validation , I have set it to initial value=”Select”
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RFValFacilityID" runat="server" ControlToValidate="ddlFacilityID"
                        Display="Dynamic" InitialValue="Select">Please select the facility code</asp:RequiredFieldValidator></td>
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RFValPwd" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txtPassword"
                        Display="Dynamic" Width="147px">Password is mandatory.</asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
I also have reset button. My reset on click event doesnot fire.
  protected void btnReset_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            txtPassword.Text = "";

It asks for the required fields.
I also tried using javascript for resetting, but does not work.
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        function reset()
            document.Form1.ddlUserName.selectedIndex = 0;
            document.Form1.ddlUserName.options[0].selected = true;
            document.Form1.ddlFacilityID.selectedIndex = 0;
            document.Form1.ddlFacilityID.options[0].selected = true;
            document.getElementById("txtPassword").value = "";

If I remove my required field validators the reset code works fine.
Why does this happen??

Sorry , I just forgot about the causesValidation property of the reset button. Now I set it to false. So everything seems working fine. Thanks a lot.
