How in the hell did you do that? That might be running through your head as you look at that. Well, here's the HTML behind it.
<FORM ACTION="bin/mailto" METHOD="POST">
Type your name here:
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="Name">
Type your password here:
<INPUT TYPE="password" NAME="Password">
<TEXTAREA NAME="Comments" ROWS="3"COLS="18"></TEXTAREA>
How did you find us?
<OPTION SELECTED>Followed Link
May I take your order?
<INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="food">Beer
<INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="food">Coffee
Please take this survey:
<INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="beef" VALUE="on">Do you like beef?
<INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="chicken" VALUE="on">Do you like chicken?
<INPUT TYPE=submit VALUE="Submit this crap">
<INPUT TYPE=reset VALUE="Reset this mess">
First of all, in the FORM tag, you don't have to use "BIN/MAILTO" like
I did (Unless you're a Tripod Member),
because I don't know if you have a BIN/MAILTO directory. Just put what
URL your server provides you with (usually given information).
If the input type is "radio", this is important to know: If there is more than one radio tag with the same name, only one of them can be switched "on" at a time.
For input type, that goes accordingly, like PASSWORD is a password-like text (asterisks). NAME, however, can be changed. When this form is filled out,if you have "Password" as the name of that input type, the reciever will get this:
If you typed Cowpie as your password, of course.
As for TEXTAREA, you can decide however many Columns and Rows it has (ROWS & COLS).
The SELECT Tag is a pull-down menu to select from. Each choice should have<OPTION> in front of it. <OPTION SELECTED> is if you want a default option to be selected.
INPUT TYPE=reset/submit are buttons in which you can change the labels of them after the VALUE tag.
