HTML Form Parser

  1. Dec 17, 2005 #1
    OK, so I know how to make a form show itself in a website, how to make a submit button which will send the data entered as an email and I successfully recieve the email. There's only one problem... How do I make the mail readable?? I was forced to make a pascal program which parses the mail and changes it into readable text, but thats not very practicle although successful. How do I program the HTML to send something more sensible? Can I embed a java program in the HTML which will do the trick?

    HELP!!

    Use a CGI script (perl, python, etc.) running on the server to convert the form's contents into whatever format you'd like.
