Manually Creating Forms

The Form Page Wizard is well-suited to many of the forms you might want to use on a Web. For the times that it isn't, you can create a form manually by designing it on a Web page.

In the rest of this chapter, you'll learn how to design a form by using text boxes, check boxes, radio buttons , drop-down menus , and more. You'll create these elements, add labels that describe their purposes, and limit the visitor's answers to a range of possible choices.

When the form is completed, you'll determine how to use the information it has collected ”saving it to a text file, sending it as email, or calling special Web server programs that can decode the form.

You'll also be able to modify existing forms, which is useful even if they were originally created by a FrontPage wizard.
