    Form Formatting Issue

    I have created a document that is html and will be accesed via an email link. It goes to a form page for a user questionaire and comments page. My Test page is http://www.sundanceresort.com/feedback.htm Upon submit it sends an email via send mail with the data.

    Code:
     
     
    Example:Email with data
     
    First: Jimmy
    
    Last: Page
    
    Company: Valhalla
    
    Phone: 801-666-6666
    
    Email: their email@theirdomain.com
    
    Date: 01-01-2004
    
    General Sales: Excellent
    
    General Sales Efficiency: Excellent
    
    General Sales ourteous: Excellent
    
    General Sales Comments: There's a lady who's sure
    
    All that glitters is gold
    
    And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
    
    When she gets there she knows
    
    If the stores are all closed
    
    With a word she can get what she came for.
    
    Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.
    
    
    My problem is my users don't like the format of the email. Is there a way to format it so its more to their liking? If yes is there a site/tutorial/instructions online I can read to learn this? If not what suggestions do you all have to help me. My first gut reaction is suck it up users its not that bad but I figured their has got to be a way.

    Thanks

    Why not format the email in HTML instead of plain text? Then you can format everything in a friendlier manner.

    i'm assuming you mean "to change the format without ditching FormMail.pl" ?
    in that case i'm afraid the answer is no. you may have to either modify the Perl script yourself, or look for alternative CGI mailers.

    I guess maybe I should clarify. The results from the form need to be formatted better.

    I was affraid you would say that. Suggestions of a place to learn to modify the perl or other cgi that might format better?
