Default Mandatory Forms in Html

Hi Everone

Now I have 5 text fields in my html form ,I want the user to enter data into all the 5 fields without leaving out a single one.If the user skips any field and presses 'Submit' then a message box should pop up prompting the user to enter the empty fields.How is this done?
