Beginner - HELP with Spry Textarea Label !!


Recommended Posts

I am a beginner when it comes to websites and I am trying to set up a contact form on my website. Right now I don't have it set up with PHP (Next monster to tackle!) just with "mail to" and that is all working fine. The thing I am having trouble with is getting the comments label to line up with the top of my comments text area. Right now "comments" is positioned at the bottom of the text area. I am using spry for the form and buttons. If anyone can help me out I'd really appreciate it. I attached a picture of the site and included the source code below.
