Subject: Re: email forms

   I am trying to put together some email forms, but have a questions. Can =
   the forms be directly sent to email or must they pass through a cgi =
   script or some other form handler first.

It is possible to supply a MAILTO: url for a form, but different
browsers mangle the data in different ways. It is usually much
more reliable to use a script.
