    hi Laurent1u,

    It looks like there is something very wrong with your form.  The list of countries is appreantly a definition list, but you don't have the parent <dl> tag around the entire list.. ie, you have each country inside a <dt> tag, but the <dt> list itself should be inside a <dl> tag.  Have a look at this link, it should make things clearer.


    I don't see the red border, but I imagine it's because the email field is directly after your (unclosed) definition list.  Try fixing the list and I suspect the email field will be fine too.  It's standard practice to just use a dropdown <select> list for the countries, so you might find that more suitable than the definition list.  You can easily add one in the form builder.  just select a Dropdown in the Form tools and then set it to a country list using the Special tab on the top menu.
