I wonder what the latter group is. I guess it has a limited

Anyway, you should first check what gets sent as form data. If it is
wrong, you may have an HTML problem. If it is OK, then the problem is
not in HTML.

Huh? Yes, it does not work. Why don't you try making it work?

And why are you using XHTML? And invalid XHTML at that.

It looks like normal multipart form data, uninterpreted. I don't see
what you are trying to ask.

Looks like their form defaults the enctype attribute while yours has
enctype="multipart/form-data". Apparently their script cannot handle
multipart data. This is a good reason to find a better script. Other
reasons include the following:
- it generates invalid HTML as the response
- when installed, it sets up an open relay, which can be used and will
be used by spammers to send spam thru your server, creating troubles for
you, too.
(It takes a form field and directly uses it as E-mail destination
address. This means that anyone or anything can use it to send E-mail to
anyone, as often as desired.)
