    HTML Forms

    Hey,

    I would like to be able to create a form that sent the information to a given e-mail address after a user submitted it. How would I go about doing this? Do you just change the action field to "mailto:aaa@abc.com" or something like that? Also, could someone refer me to a good tutorial on making basic forms?

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    You should use a server-side language to do this.

    Which tutorial you need would depend on what server-side languages your server supports.

    If you're curious about what's wrong with mailto:, I recommend you read this article.

    Code for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, & Opera, then add fixes for IE, not vice versa.

    As Kravvitz says it's always best to use a FormMail of some type to process your form. A couple of suggestions here:
    Check with your host, they probably offer such a script for your use...

    This is a nice site for styling forms:
