Bug A Javascript that will not allowed alphabet character type into a text box

A Javascript that will not allowed alphabet character type into a text box. I cannot get it to work. When an alphabet character is pressed, nothing should be entered into the text box

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

<TITLE>Map Drive Example</TITLE>
<SCRIPT lang="JScript">

function showDialog(txtDriveLetter)
    if (txtDriveLetter != 0 && txtDriveLetter != 1 &&
	txtDriveLetter != 2 && txtDriveLetter != 3 &&
	txtDriveLetter != 4 && txtDriveLetter != 5 &&
	txtDriveLetter != 6 && txtDriveLetter != 7 &&
	txtDriveLetter != 8 && txtDriveLetter != 9)
      alert("Only numeric is allowed");




  <LABEL for="txtDriveLetter" tabindex="3">Drive Letter:</LABEL> <INPUT type="text" id="txtDriveLetter" maxlength=2 onkeydown='showDialog(txtDriveLetter.value)'>

function checkRefid(field) {
var valid = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789"
var ok = "yes";
var temp;
for (var i=0; i<field.value.length; i++) {
temp = "" + field.value.substring(i, i+1);
if (valid.indexOf(temp) == "-1") ok = "no";
if (ok == "no") {
alert("Invalid entry! Only characters and numbers (no spaces) are accepted! for a reference name");

Try this - place in the string valid only what you wish the user to use and you should be ok???
