it would be nice if we could send it to our mail when they hit submit instead of it being sent through thier mail first, but that requires php right?

@ Your first post:

You are using a lot of deprecated code, and have several errors, such as duplicated or unfinished tags.

For lots of suggestions, try validating your code, by following this link:

@ Your second post:

Yes, but there are lots of free scripts out there:


(Several good ones there)

From the code you posted above, you're pretty close to what you want, but you are using many outdated methods, and you also have several typos.

Do you know anything about CSS? Just wondering, because if not, I can give you a quick run down of it and it will make your life easier


Some suggestions for cleaning up your code:

First, put in a doctype (http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/doctype.html). (More info about doctypes at that link)

Also, if you have a tag like br, input, or hr, that doesn't need a closing tag, write it like this: <br /> <input /> <hr /> etc, instead of like this: <br> <input> <hr>.

Write all your tags in lower case.

Make sure you close your tags, and nest them correctly

This is a very good CSS tutorial: http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_intro.asp

I hope you don't think I'm just punting the issue and sending you off to look at some website. I started to write an explanation of CSS, and found I couldn't do it very well, so I think that the tutorial will be a better place for you to learn and if you have questions, feel free to ask them!
