You really need to check at a couple of levels for this sort of thing  
- I use Spry validation on the actual page to check that the values have
a. been filled out, and
b. meet my requirements (eg, a date is  a date)

Then I also check stuff in php on the handling page, as people can  
turn JavaScript off and avoid the immediate checking.

It's a bit tedious the first couple of times, but it really has to be  
done that way to be sure the data you're getting is decent quality -  
users can be incredibly creative in how they stuff things up...
