I've set the email field to have a length of 20 characters, same as the Name field. The Name field looks great, but the beginning of the email field is off the left side of the page and you can't see what you've typed until you're 9 characters into the email address. (It doesn't display like this in your Preview.) This form will be in a sidebar on the left side of the page and the div is 175 characters wide. All of the fields have been set to display vertically. Please help!

Post a link to the form so that I may take a look at the code embedded in your site.

Good Day,

The issue is with some code outside the form code. If you look at line 71 of your page, you will see the following CSS code:

Code:

#email {
   float: right;
   height: 21px;
   width: 241px;
   font-family: "Trebuchet MS", Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
   font-size: 16px;
   color: #666;
   font-weight: bold;
   margin-bottom: 25px;
}


It looks like you are using this CSS to style a div on your page called 'email'. This is the same name that we give our email text box element. It doesn't appear that you are actively using this style on your page, so I would recommend removing the above code which is causing the issues. Alternatively, you could simply rename it.

Yep. I actually considered removing that div earlier, but obviously, didn't consider the conflict it was creating. I removed it and it took care of the issue, of course. Thanks for your help, Nick!
