Validating phone number and email in form

I have a form with phone number and email fields that need some validation scripting. I need to make sure the user enters the phone number and email correctly, i.e. 10 digit phone number, no alphas, and check for '@' and '.' in the email entry. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The great thing about JavaScript is people already did stuff for you if you know how to find it. Google is a big help:

Email Validation:
Phone validation:

just remember that you need to validate on the server and also foreign phone numbers are not 10 numbers long. [if you care about international stuff]
