I think I may have just screwed myself... I am building a page that allows users to post user created content. It utilizes bb_code, forces users to enter a title, article (ie, textarea), has submit and preview buttons, then a column on the left to sort the article into a category (via checkboxes). Problem is, the list of categories (checkboxes) is outside the <form> </form> tags. I can't include this list inside the tags with the current layout without having the situation of <form><form></form></form>, which does not appear to work. Any way to solve this without moving the category list? Thanks.

Why exactly can you not raise the < form > tags to engulf the entire form? Those elements do need to be inside the form unless you do some fancy footwork using javascript where changing those external form elements changes hidden elements inside the form tag.
