Chapter 25. Form Elements

Forms are the primary way by which a client computer sends information to the server. A form can be used for simple data storage (logging into a password-restricted area) or for complex data storage (filling out a Bugzilla bug report).

Forms take several stages: generation of the form by the server (which sometimes changes based on input from the client—such as the browser name and version), data entry by the user, often a validation by JavaScript, submittal to the server, and processing by the server. Needless to say, working with HTML forms is one of the biggest uses of JavaScript.
