what's also important to understand is that people don't even need to open your HTML pages in a browser to send requests. I can open cURL, telnet or whatever and send you any HTTP request I want. So validating data is only possible on the server. Anything before that has absolutely no effect on what I can or cannot do.

Using jQuery or any other client side script to validate user input is only really for usability, to make your visitors experience as nice as possible.
Any validation MUST be done on the server side as it is the only way you can ENSURE the data is same and secure.
Hope this helps,
