javascript window problem

I have a page that will output data from a database, this data is displayed in a form.

There are two buttons delete and update, update will allow me to update the database. Delete will delete that data from the database.

The form calls a servlet which will examine the button name and carry out the matching business logic.

I have been asked to add some more logic which when a user presses delete a prompt will be displayed asking are you sure u want to delete the data. This prompt will have two buttons yes and no.

This prompt will need to be displayed when the delete button is clicked but before the servlet is called. Is there any examples of this, and also is there any examples of how javascript builds a prompt containg two buttons.

My experience of java script is very limited.

Thnaks for any help Tony

Sorted with a simple line of code:

<input type="submit" name = "action" value="Delete" on_click="javascript: return confirm('Wanna delete record?');">

You do not get a choice regarding the button labels. They will be 'OK' and 'Cancel'.
