As Paul has already implied, unless you have a custom DOCTYPE (DTD; Document Type Definition), those attirbutes are not recognized and thus not considered valid. Moreover, I would not recommend creating the form like that. If available, you should use a server-side language (e.g., PHP, Perl, etc.) for this. Why? Because not everyone has a mail client installed, and even if they do, it might be rather annoying for them to have to configure it just to e-mail you — doing this entirely on the server makes it so it is completely transparent to the user. If you do have server-side scripting available, in this case, PHP, I would recommend you check out Ryan's script and continue from there.
