Client-side input validation is fairly simple. Add an attribute called required to the form input tags (as shown in step 8 of the <>. It has no value --- just put the word required in the tag definition.

For the email input, use type="email" as an attribute.

For the password input, use type="password" as an attribute. This does not add any validation, but it does mask the user input.

Add appropriate validation to the customer account form components. All of the fields are important, so all should be required.

Save, reload, and test. You should not be allowed to leave fields empty now.

Server-side customer validation (as done in lab 6 using the OVal framework) is a bonus task.
