Hi Kit,

I will take a look this weekend. I don't see any glaring issues at first glance. Some quick notes:
  1. Are you getting a javascript or error? You can press F12 to see the developer console and copy/paste any errors. Any error information is helpful.
  2. Have you used SharePoint designer or Infopath to customize the form?
The other tough thing here is... I don't have a SharePoint 2010 environment to test with...

  1. I don't have error message. When I put code to newform page, nothing has changed.
  2. I don't use SP designer or InfoPath. I know JavaScript cannot work in custom form. :)
I will make more tests. Enjoy your Weekend. It is not urgent.

Under List Settings -> Advanced options, is " Launch forms in a dialog?" set to "Yes"? If so, is it possible to try with this set to "No"?
