I was not able to look into the problem with the validations because the CSSFormBuilder folder was missing. I will need a copy of your form builder folder from the root of the site to look into the validation issues further. For the server validations did you choose the action of the form to be the hwscContact.pl from within the CSSFormBuilder wizard? If so this is probably the cause of not seeing the server validations triggered. The server validations will only run on the page the info is posted to, so I'm not sure that you will be able to get your script working with server side validations.
