Chapter 15. Forms

Forms provide a method for true interaction between users and the publisher of a web site, with an immediacy that could never be achieved in print. With forms, you can solicit input from a user in order to provide a customized response on-the-fly or just collect the data for later use. Forms can be used for functions as simple as surveys and guestbooks or as complex as online commerce systems.

This chapter provides a detailed review of the available form elements and how to use them. It also provides a brief introduction to CGI, one of the available methods for processing form information.
