      Heisan Lotta! and hello Bill and Stephen!

      I have been reading those CGI scripts up and down since I never saw a CGI
      script in my life before. I finally got it to work somehow. I bought this
      package, and found out that the 24 hour support did not include anything on
      how to do this code. That belongs to Premium support department @ $100 or
      per hour. I don't remember, and I can't afford either.

      On my page do I need information about customer's choice of colors, text
      styles, vehicle
      like year, make and model and I have made multiple choice menus for
      mat colors, text styles, etc., year and make of vehicle. But there are just
      far too many models to make a menu for that. Instead I wanted people to
      write in the model themselves in a text box. I prefer all that information
      to be sent along with the order. But I have not figured out how I can get
      <input type="text" size="20" name="?"> to work. The rest of my multiple
      choice menus are all linked together in this way, the first pull down menu
      reflects the variable VARFrill1 from the form:

      <select name="VARFrill1">
      <option value="Number of letters:1<br><li>VARFrill2">1</option>
      <option value="Number of letters:2<br><li>VARFrill2">2</option>
      <select name="VARFrill2">
      <option value="Text style:Block<br><li>Varfrill3">Block</option>
      <option value="Text style:Outline<br><li>Varfrill3">Outline</option>
      <select name="VARFrill3">
      <option value="Mat color: Red<br><li>VARFrill4">Red</option>

      But how can I get the textbox linked in here? I need the input to be sent
      with the rest of the form to. I have tried to call it
      another variable, like VARQuan. But that does not work off course. It is
      a number I ask for in the text box.

      The text between " and <br><li> shows up the shopping cart and on the
      customers order that is sent to me. If I don't include the <br><li> the
      VARFrilln is displayed in the shopping cart. I have not checked if anything
      goes wrong as well.

      > is: 1) One piece front
      > mat/plain (139)<br><li>VARFrill1
      > Are you sure that is correct?
      Yes I believe it is correct. The name of the product is in the cgi script,
      I put not only name of product, but also other things as mentioned above.

      > Hej då!
      Lotta, yes I am. A full blood Norwegian living in US. But heading back home
      for a month this week!!

      Stephen how do I find out if the cgi script allow the text box in the middle
      of the form full of multiple choice drop down menus? Thanks for your advice
      and I am happy I found the right list. I was sending it to the clip group
      first, not realizing there were 2 different e-mails.

      I am very happy about this list. I have learned the html I know so far all
      by myself using internet and a couple of books. I needed someone to discuss
      things with. And it helps trying to explain the problem. That already gave
      me more ideas how to solve my problems. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!
