Next: Laying Out Forms Up: Serving Information to Previous: Active Maps


Forms are one way the World Wide Web allows users to submit information to servers. All the mechanisms described so far allow users to choose from a set of available options. Forms let the user type information into their web browser and then get the server to run a program with their submission as input. Examples of things you might type are keys to search a database (e.g. what films was Zazu Pits in?).
