e-mail form

Typical use: Sending immediate feedback from a web page.
If you want the students to have the ability to send simple feedback from a web page, add a "submit" link to that web page. By clicking on the word "submit" the user will generate an e-mail message that will be sent to you or to any address which you specify.

e-mail form instructions:

Embed in the html document the statement below, carefully replacing the words in pink with your desired text, and leaving intact the text in blue (the coding).

<a href="mailto:the target e-mail address?subject=the subject name">the visible statement</a>

This is what the same line might look like when you replace the generic pink statements with real text:

<a href="mailto:raizen@mail.utexas.edu?subject=e-mail form">submit</a>

You have created a code that will generate an e-mail message for raizen@mail.utexas.edu, and enter in the "subject" field the words "e-mail form." The visible result on your web page will be the word "submit", looking like this:


All the student needs to do is compose a message and send the form by clicking on its "send" button.

To test the code, click on the "submit" link above, and the browser will automatically generate an e-mail message in your mail program, or a web form that should look like this:

This is an example of a simple web page which generates an e-mail message. To create the message the user needs to click on the "comments and suggestions" link at the bottom of the page.
