Form submit problem

I have a form with four text areas. To submit the form, I have an image that is a link set up like this:
<a href="javascript rocessSave()"><img src="<cfoutput>#IMAGESPATH#</cfoutput>/Save.gif" alt="Save"></a>
In the processSave function I call this:
document.detailForm.submit();
If one text area has about 1000 characters entered into it, the form submits. If I try to enter about the same amount of text into a second text area, I get an invalid syntax error for the document.detailForm.submit.
Has anyone had this kind of problem?

your form is it a "post" or "get"?

It was a get. I changed it to post and that was it. Thanks!
