You've got far deeper problems than form accessibility there.  The page
bears only a passing resemblance to HTML, and once you've fixed that,
you'll almost certainly have fixed your problems too.  A validator
will tell you (among other important things) that all your labels are
misplaced, malformed and "for" something that doesn't exist.
A browser might concievably correct the first two (but it would be very
wrong for you to rely on it), but there's nothing any browser can
do about the third.
