Introduction to forms - Web Designing

HTML form tags alone don't make forms work; they merely provide an interface for gathering data. The real work is done by forms-processing applications on the server, such as CGI scripts, ASP, PHP, or Java servlets

For simple forms processing, many web developers rely on CGI scripts. CGI (Common Gateway Interface) is the interface between HTTP/web server software (the program responsible for web transactions) and other programs on the server.

If you are coming at web design from a designer's point of view (or even just as a novice to web design), chances are you will be handling the HTML form elements and leaving the programming to trained programmers. Often, ISPs provide a few canned CGI scripts, such as a guestbook or mailing function, that you can point to from within your form, but if you want something customized for your site.
