7.5. Web Forms

If you've ever searched a Web site, taken a poll, or made a purchase online, you've used a Web form. Web forms take the form of pop-up menus, checkboxes, and little text boxes. They're designed to collect information from the Web site visitor and save it on a server for processing.

You can build a Web form in Word, but you'll need the help of a Web programmer to write the necessary CGI scripts that make the form work. (CGI stands for common gateway interface, a software convention for transferring and processing data between Web pages and servers.)
