You cannot insert scripts or forms into content pages of joomla by default.

There are a few different ways to approach it, but usually the following is the easiest way to approach it:

1) install a php/script module (http://extensions.joomla.org/component/option,com_mtree/task,viewlink/link_id,1758/Itemid,35/)

2) paste the paypal code into the module and move the position of the module so that it appears in a good position on the appropriate page

problem solved!

the other option is to install a php/script bot and disable the content items wysiwyg so you can paste the paypal code into the content items...

Another thing you can try is to turn of the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor.

After turning it off paste your code into the editor.

I was able to post code into the documet that I needed and it worked great....

I disabled the WYSIWIG Editor in the System Configuration.  Then I was able to use something like Dreamweaver or Front Page to create the page manually.  (I pasted the Paypal code into that document - then pasted all of the code into the Joomla page, hit Save and I was done!)
