While sempsteen is correct, you can achieve the correct effect in this
simple scenario by checking the return value of the confirm button.

<input type="submit" value="Delete Record" onsubmit="return confirm ('Are you 
sure you want to delete this record!!');" />

And then check for the submit...
This is prone to a lot of problems though if this is your only security measure.

You might want to check out this library if you want to do this type of thing 
often and have useful interaction:
