Form Tags


The <INPUT> tag, as its name implies, provides some type of data entry point in the form depending on the value of its TYPE attribute:

checkbox and radio specify selectable options: <INPUT TYPE=checkbox> <INPUT TYPE=radio> reset and submit make the INPUT field a button to clear the form or send its contents to the gateway: <INPUT TYPE=reset> <INPUT TYPE=submit> HIDDEN is used to conceal a field that has a preset value that will never change but is unknown to the gateway. TEXT specifies that a data input field be displayed: <INPUT TYPE="TEXT"> IMAGE displays an image and when the user selects a spot, the coordinates are passed to the gateway.

INPUT is an empty tag, like IMG, with no end tag.
