    Question Form Mailer - PHP Script - Data issue

    Hi, I'm hoping that someone can help me with this problem as I've never encountered it before. I set up a short contact form in a website and created the php script to attach to it so that it can send the information to an email account. The form works (let's the user fill it in and sends the email); however, the email has the names of the form fields but does not pick up the user entries - meaning it will say "Name:" but will have no value attached. I will attach here my html and php code and if anyone can tell me what I have done wrong or if there is something else I need to do I would be so appreciative:

    HTML:

    You have so many forms in this page!
    Keep only one <form> tag above the first input element
    HTML Code:
    <form method="post" action="comments.php">
              <label for="name">Name:</label>
            </div></td>
          <td><div align="left">
            <input name="name" type="text" id="name" size="50" maxlength="50" />
    and close the form tag after the last element

    HTML Code:
    <input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" value="Send" />
            </form>
    remove all other <form> and </form> tags
