    When I hit submit it says that it cannot be submitted and I get an error message.

    I already sent a test using the stand alone version of the form and it worked with no problem

    However, I can see the form won't submit when doing it from your page it won't do it

    Checking further, looks like you must update your current DOCTYPE declaration in your page.

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

    Please replace it by this one: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
