Summary

In this chapter, you learned how to add HTML forms and form elements to your pages. The chapter began with an overview of how forms work and which items need to be present in the <form> element itself. You learned how to add text areas, text entry boxes, radio buttons, check boxes, password fields, hidden fields, and menus to your HTML form. From there, the discussion turned to creating attractive, easy-to-understand forms through certain layout and labeling techniques. This included some methods that can be used to better organize your form and make it more accessible to assistive browsers.

In the next chapter, you’ll see how Common Gateway Interface scripts work, and how to use scripts to work with HTML form data.
