EDIT THE CONTACT AND QUOTES FORM:
Click for current info on setting up the template forms.
Click for info on adding more fields to the forms.

The form will work with most contact form scripts however you will need help files or a sample form from the script you intend to use. Most form elements work the same way from script to script, however the hidden values usually vary. You may want to consider editing the entire page in Notepad instead of a wysiwyg editor.
