Nice and Simple Contact Form by CSS Tricks not validating xh
# January 10, 2010 at 10:22 pm
I have been trying to validate my website using w3.org xhtml validator. It seems that the only issues I have left are in regards to a contact form developed by css tricks.
works fine but kicks back errors in the validation as seen here
Any ideas on how to modify it so that it passes?# January 11, 2010 at 10:51 am

I’m pretty sure the only thing that needs to be done is close the line break tag on line 57, so use <br /> instead of <br>, and also close the input tag on line 59, so it should beCode:
The warnings are due to having labels with the "for" attribute but not having corresponding "id" attributes on the input fields.# January 11, 2010 at 4:40 pm
Thanks for the response Mark. When I removed those 2 elements, it did reduce the number of errors however their was still approx. 7-8 errors left. Your comment did help me identify what elements needed to be updated. After a bit of testing the code I was able to remove all of the xhtml errors. I have included the updated code below:
* Please note that I have little experience with PHP so my modifications may have unforseen consequences. I did test the form after making the changes and it worked in firefox 3. Updated code below to validate in xhtml:
document name: recaptchalib.php
document name: index.php (or whatever page the contact form will be placed)
xhtml validatedCode:form method=”post” action=”contactengine.php”>
Hopefully this helps and did not break anything. If you notice something in my updated code that I should change please let me know.
