will this work, do you understand?

<?php $body = "<table width="300" border="0" cellpadding="2">
           <tr valign="top">
             <td colspan="2">
               <p><b>test form one</b></p>
             </td>
           </tr>
           <tr valign="top">
             <td width="109">&nbsp;</td>
             <td width="177">this is test form one</td>
           </tr>
           <tr valign="top">
             <td width="109">
               <p><b>NAME</b></p>
             </td>
             <td width="177">
               <?php echo $name; ?>
             </td>
           </tr>
</table>" ; ?>

Then send that to a form which emails it.
<?php mail($to,$subject,$body) ; ?>
