I don't even understand what you're trying to say there, but the 
quickest fix is to solve this particular validation issue is to use 
<div> instead of <span>.  As you mentioned, span is an inline element 
and can only contain other inline level elements.  Div is block level 
and can contain, among others, the form element.
