Hi everyone,
I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right spot...if not please forgive me :)

I have been pulling my hair out for awhile over this form on my website at http://www.mysavvysiteswebstudio.com/quote.html

I cannot get the dang thing to work right. I have picked through all the code and it all seems to look ok however the submit and reset buttons don't work. I'm using formmail.cgi. I have made many forms in the past and all work just fine, maybe the form is too long. I have heard somewhere that you can break up forms into smaller chunks, however I have no direction on how to do this or if it would even work in my case.
any advice would be much appreciated,
Thanks so much in advance,

This isn't javascript related, your problem is the HTML itself. You've got two closing </form> tags. So browsers are probably not recognizing the buttons as part of the form.

Make your life easier by choosing a DOCTYPE (http://www.alistapart.com/articles/doctype/) and validating (http://validator.w3.org/) as you go.
