Default replacing "alert" with a textbox

I wanted to merge 2 textboxes into 1. I put <%%> tags on the original additional textbox and its submit button. Instead I added a textbox id="t1" under the "reset".

I'm stuck on replacing the former "alert" in javascript with the "t1" textbox. There's no error showing but the textbox "t1" doesn't function.

Here's the link:

     case "S": return 300; 
     case "T": return 400;
     default: return 0; 

   function computeValue(str) { 
    var ans = 0; 
    for(var i = 0; i < str.length; i++) { 
     ans += getKeyValue_h(str.charAt(i));
    return ans; 
function Process(){
  var frm = document.getElementById("form1");
  var x = Number(frm.hOutput.value);
  var remainder = (x % 22);
  if (remainder==0) {remainder=22;}
  alert("( " + x + " % 22 ) = SPOKE " + remainder) 
  <style type="text/css">
<%'<form id="form1" action="" onsubmit="">
'Enter a number to determine which SPOKE it belongs to:
'    <input type="text" name="t1"/>
'    <input type="button" value="SPOKE" onclick="Process()"/>
  <form id="form1" action="javascript:void(0)">
    <textarea          name="hInput"  id="hInput"  onkeyup="hOutput.value = computeValue(hInput.value, 'h');" rows="9" cols="64" class="onLoad"></textarea><br />
    <input type="reset" value="Clear" name="B2" />
    <input type="text" name="hOutput" id="hOutput" onkeyup="t1.value = Process()" class="onLoad"/>
    <input type="text" name="t1" id="t1" readonly="true"/>

I feel sorry:
