Forms are one of the most commonplace interactive features on the Web. You use them all the time: to fill out contact information, register for a Web site, or fill out your credit card information for online purchases. Building forms is a bit more detailed than simpler markup tasks because forms use special controls and scripting in order to function. In this section, you learn how forms work and you gain insight into the elements that help Web designers and developers create forms for their sites.
