form submit button
Hi, I am working on my website and have made a register form with html. It looks good and I have the submit and reset buttons at the bottom. When I click the submit button, email comes up yet, none of the form fields are in there! How can I select all the fields and copy them into the email to send automatically? Please help, I have been all over the internet and found nothing. Thanks!

Knowing nothing on this topic, I did some searching myself and found this:
<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="mailto:your email address">
IE Version 6+ and equivalent browsers no longer support "Mailto:" forms .
If you were planning on using the "mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" kind of form submission, you might be out of luck.
There was quite a bit of info gleaned by a Google search for html forms email tutorial that told me (among other things) that to be effective it requires CGI and/or PHP kinda stuff.
