i have this problem quite a bit.
it seems every time i use a theme that i create on my own .. or download for that matter, and "press it" using
<?/* Template Name: name */?>,
<?php wp_head(); ?>,
<?php wp_footer(); ?>..
and the rest..
the formatting of any form i put on the site always messes up!
any suggestions?? id like to figure this out once and for all.
