Submission works from your website but not in an embedded form

    Please click on these two links and try to submit a form.  I can fill out the form, but when I click submit, I get an error message that flashes by so quickly someone can not see it.  The State of Nevada uses Ektron as its CMS.  Do you think that the forms need to be embedded using an IFrame or some other arrangement.

    If the embedded form does not work the same as it does in the web version, the first thing I usually recommend is to try the iFrame embed method instead:

    This will insulate your form from any other scripts or elements that may be interfering with your form. 

    If this does not allow for your embedded form to complete submission, let us know and we will be happy to have another look.

    That's a pretty good fix.  But, I still have one issue.

    Please see

    Just above the submit button is a message.  I can't get it to be 100% visible.  I tried changing the width attribute in the javascript for an i-frame to 90% and 105%, but that doesn't work.  Any suggestions?
