It is possilble to add a form. Right now the html checker is probably rejecting what you enter. You have a couple of options. You could hack around on /conf/_formatting.php until it accepts your paypall button. You would have to add the form and input tags and get the attributes right. Or, right before you post the button, you could open up /conf/_formatting.php and change
$use_html_checker = 1;
$use_html_checker = 0;
Submit your post, then turn the html checker back on. You don't want to leave it off all the time, because people could post comments with any sort of code. That would be a security risk. If you're posting this button often then it might be worth your time to edit _formatting.php to accept the code that you use. I don't know exactly how you would need to go about that, but I know it can be done.
It would be nice if someone wrote a plugin that added a checkbox to the backoffice that said "Disable html checker for this post" so you could post any code without having to open the file and change that variable.
