Form not submitting in IE8  (See more user questions)

Hi Charles,

Yep, it was a stupid error on the form page. I had (for some strange reason)
a </form> before the input submit button code - so the submit was not part
of the form, it was staring me in the face but I couldn't see it. But I
also had another </form> after the submit button code as well. Funny thing
is that IE6 and Firefox didn't have a problem with this just IE8 - and I
always thought that firefox was the fussy one.

Thanks for your help,
