Hey Chris, thanks for the quick response!
No other forms on the page.
It's a pretty simple page, it has a lot of DIV tags for layout, but I placed my buttons within a very specific DIV.
I did add the Form TAGs manually and yes it worked.
I invested a lot in WebAssist (not the PayPal buttons but I purchased other suites) and I did that so I wouldn't have to manually enter code to get the thing to work... otherwise I would have just hand coded it... up to this point it would have been quicker and less frustrating.
I just like things to work the way they are suppose to... I guess it's from years of owning a software development business.
You are right, there's always a reason for everything... I'd like to find out this one :-)
Thanks again and please let me know if you think of anything.
