Yes, you can place the FORM tags outside a table and then place various elements of your form within the table cells.
Many hosts have something standard already set up that you can customize -- cgi email [web.mit.edu] is one such widely used script, originally created at MIT.
I'm trying to learn php, so I prefer to do this with php, if you have any experience with this, can you help me??? I have the email program working. THe form is sent to me (yeah!) BUT, the problem, is that some of the fields are required, so I have a logic checker within the php program. If a field is left blank, the program calls up another page, and then there is a chance to re-submit the order. BUT only the info that was logic checked is sent in the order. The other info (that's not required) is not sent in the email. BUT, if there are no fields left blank, all info is sent! HELP!!
