Chapter 15. Forms > Form Elements

15.4. Form Elements

There are a variety of elements (also sometimes called "controls" or "widgets") that can be used for gathering information from a form. This section looks at each control and its specific attributes. Every form control (except submit and reset) requires that you give it a name (using the name attribute) so the form-processing application can sort the information. For easier processing of form data on the server, the value of the name should not have any character spaces (use underscores or periods instead).

15.4.1. Input Controls: <input>

The controls described in the following sections are entered as attribute options within the <input> tag.
