    New Forms Questions

    I have 2 questions.

    1. In this form link below the Title and Organization fields work fine but look different from the others fields.

    http://www.maximizeonlinesales.com/form.htm

    Any idea how I can make them all look alike?

    2. The form was created in FrontPage2000. Online after submitting there is a plain confirmation page that was created by FrontPage that shows the fields entered and an option to go back to the form. Any ideas on how I might do something a bit more stylish and compatible with my design?

    Also, it doesn't seem like only giving the user the option to go back to the form makes much sense. it seems to me a few other options (perhaps my navigation links) would be more user friendly. Any ideas how I might proceed? Thanks.

    2. Look up information on javascript form validation.

    Thanks guys. Redux, I wasn't talking bout the lenght of the fields. I should have made myself clearer. I was referring to the fields, most are yellow and looks "cut out." The other two don't and look like there is just a rectangular box.

    New Guy, specifically where do I look up java form validation? Thanks again to both of you.

    I'm using IE6 too. When I view the page I see form fields 1,2,5,6 in yellow & cut out looking, 4 and 5 look like a white outline around a rectangular box. Does anyone else see it this way or different? Thanks.

    that is the auto form completion at work...
    basically you are being informed that ie understands those fields and wants to insert some data in them (like your name f'rinstance)
    This usually shows up when you have a toolbar like the googletoolbar installed but can also work just with IE (I think I haven't really used ie for a couple of years)
