Add-on to my previous e-mail concerning the Forms & Input. I had a 
</pre> tag inside the form while it opened outside the form so the error 
messages are revised now. The question still remains the same that if it 
is possible to make a Form W3C.

In the meantime I have been taking a look at forms on several websites 
and all give me the same errors, which kind of tells me that Forms 
aren't a W3 standard thing... However, I'm most willing to learn 
otherwise for I have not yet found a satisfying answer.

Revised error message below.. URL's are the same.

   1. Error /Line 40 column 42/: document type does not allow element
      "form" here; missing one of "ins", "del", "map" start-tag.

      |<form method="post" action="testmail1.php"*>*|

      The mentioned element is not allowed to appear in the context in
      which you've placed it; the other mentioned elements are the only
      ones that are both allowed there /and/ can contain the element
      mentioned. This might mean that you need a containing element, or
      possibly that you've forgotten to close a previous element.

      One possible cause for this message is that you have attempted to
      put a block-level element (such as "<p>" or "<table>") inside an
      inline element (such as "<a>", "<span>", or "<font>").
