From now on, commit frequently and write meaningful commit messages.

[3] Using HTML5Boilerplate and Compass, make a simple index page that has a form in it, based on the image above.

  2. The form cannot be submitted if any of the required fields are empty
  3. The form cannot be submitted if the enquiry type is "Product complaint" and any of the following fields are empty: product name, product size, use-by date or batch code.
