Hey Pete,

First, you should reply to the list - that way more people could see the links you posted and help out.
Oops, my mistake, I thought I did that. Will add a snip at the bottom of this email.

It looks like there may be a problem with the form tags - when I look at this code I see
<form action="process_ecard1.php" method="post" name="mainform"></form>

That looks like you've closed your "mainform" before defining the inputs

can you tell me which line you see this? I did a search using that string on top and I couldnt find it... I even did a "form" search and still didnt find both of the form tags side by side..

Thanks again,

/// Snip of other mail with links ///
....but looks like posting links is the best option so will do: (to run the script) (View the source, its just a html file really)
All Javascript and CSS is in the ""; directory

The processing script just has
so its useless pointing you to the actual file source.

You did reply to the list - it appeared in a separate thread in my viewer, so my bad.

OK, the version with <form ...></form> appeared when I used WebDeveloper toolbar to view the *generated* source.

When I look at the source code as received by Firefox (which is what the regular "View source" option does), the closing form-tag is where you expect.

i think I spotted a problem, however. Your original source code looks like it has a spurious <tr> after the first recipient block.

I think you need to really check the nesting of your tags - try indenting stuff to make the opening and closing tags line up and see if it gets out of line somewhere.

Anyway, I suspect what is happening is that Firefox is treating the </form> as a closing tag for the spurious </tr> and then implicitly closing the original <form> tag with an empty form.

Your Javascript code also adds a spurious <tr> tag (line 17 of dynamic_no_of_recipients2.js)

This is not really anything to do with PHP, of course... :)
