Error #1 - Your <a> needs to be contained in a <p> or a <div>. Right now,
it's a direct child of <body>, which is not allowed.

Error #2 - A <form> cannot have a name attribute. You'll have to change it
to id="" and modify your JavaScript.

Error #3 and #4 - <select> is inline and cannot be a direct child of <form>.
You need to wrap them in a block element like <div>, <p>, <fieldset>.
