function isRadio(camporadio) {
 var tamanho = camporadio.length;
 var retorno = false;
 for (var cont = 0; cont < tamanho; cont++) {
  if(camporadio[cont].checked) {
    retorno = true; break;
 return (!retorno) ? false : true;

Why? Radio with only one item is not a special case and will get handled in exactly the same way as multiple-option one. As far as I can see this function always returns true, if radio option was selected and false otherwise. It's just not a very direct way to do this. For example condition in return says basically, if retorno is false, return false and true when it's true. So why not just return retorno?

if the radio has only one item, you'll face some shit :D you can remove the if by adding a second statement inside the "for" loop-checking ;]
