Here is the complete code without ajax functionality. You didn't mention in the question if you wanted to display result without loading the php page.The login.html could looks like this:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" ""> 
<script type = "text/javascript">

function validate(){
    if((f1.login.value == "") || (f1.password.value == ""))
        alert("you must enter your name and password");
	return false;
	return true;

<form  id ="f1"  action = "validate.php" method="post" onsubmit ="return validate(this);">
User Name <input  type ="text"  name = "login"/> <br />
Password <input  type ="password" name ="password"/> <br />
<input type = "submit"  value ="login"/>

The validate.php could look like this:

// fetching username and password
$userName = $_REQUEST["login"];
$userPassword = $_REQUEST["password"];
// using regular expressions to evaluate username
if(preg_match("/^[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9_]+$/", $userName, $matches)	)
function CheckWithDatabase(&$usr, &$pw)
    // connecting to the database 
    mysql_connect("localhost", "userleon", "Pa55word") or die(mysql_error()); 
    mysql_select_db("students") or die(mysql_error()); 
    $data = mysql_query("SELECT login, password FROM login_password") or die(mysql_error());  
    while($info = mysql_fetch_array( $data )) 
         if( ($usr == $info['login']) && ( $pw == $info['password'] ))
            echo "Thank you for logging in";
            // two choices offered on successful login
            echo "<form><input type=\"radio\" name=\"choice\" value=\"Add a new student\">Add a new student<br/><input type=\"radio\" name=\"choice\" value=\"Remove a student\"/>Remove a student</form>";
            // GO BACK link
            echo "<a href=\"javascript:history.go(-1)\">GO BACK</a>";
            // javascript displays message
            echo "<script type=\"text/javascript\">alert(\"wrongpassword and/or login please try again\");</script>";

Hope it answers your question Smile | :)
