In this example we have a simple web to lead form with a few fields of:

  • 'Company', 'Email', 'First Name', 'Last Name'
  • Pick list fields of 'Location' and 'Industry'
  • A multi select list of 'Please tell us at least 2 of your favorite pastimes'
  • A date field of 'Start Date'

This is what the HTML looks like if paste it raw into your web page:

This is the raw HTML from Operate Web to Lead HTML Generator:
