    Hey sonnysea welcome to the forums

    I am afraid I do not get what you are trying to do, could you be more specific, maybe post a link?

    If I have a value that shows up in a text box when I open the browser can I change that value and save it back to that HTML file ?

    This could be done with a scripting language such as perl or PHP (I think) Hopefully when Dean gets back he may be able to give you more specifics.

    I'm pretty sure that it can be done that way but just not sure if I'm self educated in HTML enough to move to a scritping language yet.

    Daves right. server-side scripting is pretty much the only way to write/create files.

    Don't worry about your HTML not being 'good' enough. HTML is just a markup language, server-side scripting is pretty much full-blown programming language, so the sooner you start learning it the better

    For your first scripting language, PHP is by far the best choice. www.php.net/ for details.
