Default Saving to the clipboard

I am trying to save the information in the text field to the clipboard. I keep getting errors. this is what I have so far

<form name="colorCodeForm">
<input type="text" name="colorText" value="#000000" size="6" readonly=true>
<input type="button" value="Copy to Clipboard" onclick="copyClipboard()">
<script language="JavaScipt">

function copyClipboard()
var colorText = document.colorCodeForm.colorText;

window.clipboardData.setData('Text', colorText.value);
