You can switch the WordPress visual editor to HTML and then copy/paste the source code from DW.  But the form may be a problem...what is the form's action pointing to?

Forms look like this in HTML:

<form method="post" action="something">

Okay, I think I see the overall problem between here and your other question.  You don't seem to know how to use scripting to process a form and send it via email.

Rather than slam your head into a wall over this, why not just download a plugin for WordPress that you can use to create the form and have it send you email, send a confirmation email to the user, and write the values to a database for other uses?

The above plugin is free and makes all of the above ridiculously easy to do.

the reservation form was created in FrontPage, and I didn't have a problem with the submit button. Now I moved it to dreamweaver to edit it now I moved it to WordPress. However, when I press the submit button I receive the 404 error- this page doesn't exit. I have the contact form I need, but this one is for limousine / air-transfer service which I would like to use on my WordPress site

FrontPage used its preinstalled extensions to process the form.  Dreamweaver has no built-in code to do form to email but you can purchase an extension that will automate it.  However, the DW stuff does not work well within the WordPress framework and given the number of form handling plugins available for WordPress, you should just install one of them and create the form that way.

Seriously, give cforms a try.
