[Mailman-Users] Question about public HTML pages...

    It sounds like the "submit" input in your PayPal form is actually 
invoking the subscription form processing script. Make sure your PayPal 
form is not ending up _inside_ the Mailman subscription form tags when 
the subscription page is rendered. If it is, you may need to edit the 
subscription form page template to make sure those forms do not overlap.
