    Hi, I am currently designing a website using coolpage html editor. I want to put a form on my site enabling customers to order nametapes from our company. Can anyone tell me how to start?

    I havent used coolpage html editor.. however a really easy and straightforward one to use is notetab which can be downloaded from www.download.com and has all help files and codes...

    However I can help you with the code for a form if that is what you want.. What style of form do you want?

    By the way, I used to use Coolpage and it is probably the worst program for web-design (Frontpage, dare I say it, is much better). Coolpage uses lots of bloated Javascript to accurately position text on screen, meaning it takes ages to load (bad), will not be accessable to people with special browsers (worse) and will not display if Javascript is disabled (disaster)!

    Dump it, learn HTML using the w3schools link above and, if you have to use a WYSIWYG app, steal Dreamweaver.
