    You can't use JavaScript to force anyone to do anything since not everyone has it on to start with and if you try to use it to force someone to do something they don't want to do they'll turn it off.

    You need to validate what they enter into your form once it gets to the server. You might repeat parts of that validation in JavaScript for the convenience of those filling out the form but no JavaScript validation of a form is enforceable and so all the validation you want to enforce must be done on the server.
