HTML5 PHP form won't send

I am still learning PHP and forms so any help would be ace!

Please the relevant code form the from page and the php below;

if(empty($surename)){
    $formok = false;
    $errors[] = "You have not entered your surname";
}

Try change $surename to $surname

if(empty($surname)){
    $formok = false;
    $errors[] = "You have not entered your surname";
}

Edit: Wow didn't see how long ago this was posted sorry was just related to my question so had a quick look and noticed an error.
