Chapter 11 - Web Forms
This chapter covers the HTML form elements. Forms let you build interactive web pages that collect information from a user and process it on the web server. You can use forms to gather information and create databases or to send customized responses to your users. Forms collect—but do not process—data. The data processing is performed by an application on the web server. Forms are the basis for online commerce; without them, users would not be able to enter their order choices, shipping address, and credit card information while shopping on the web.
When you complete this chapter, you will be able to:
- Understand how forms work
- Use the <form> element to create forms
- Create input objects
- Style forms with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
- Build a form
