Debugging recaptcha html form with python cgi

I have an html form with a recaptcha image that posts to a python cgi script. The form elements are captured (they print to the form) with the exception of the recaptcha challenge/response, which always appear empty on submit.

The form was working only a short time ago and I've made no changes to apache2 or to my LAN or firewall since then. I understand that I can insert an error parameter into the challenge/response api, but I can't find an example in google docs.

Let me know how to fix this thanks

Just to make sure that you have all the info you may need, I also attach the config file that is imported into the above python cgi script. It's straightforward - the primary purpose is to illustrate how I've complied with google's guidance in using my reCaptcha account.

Fixed. The form action must precede the table definition on the html page that is imported (the same rule applies for other languages such as php).

Of course I'd rate my own solution as excellent! This took a while but it works.
