Hi I am new to cgi and I have a send mail script. I know that if I place these hidden fields what happens,

<input type=hidden name="redirect" value="http://host.com/to/file.html">

I wanted to know if there is any hidden fields which sends the mail in HTML format?

Thanks Aseem

A hidden tag just means the user doesnt see the input box.  It works exactly like a regular input box.  What you do with it on the cgi end is up to you.  As far as sending in html format you need to do that when you send it out and if the person receving the email has an html enabled mail client it will display in html. for example if you wanted it all in bold you could put your message in <b>bold tags</b> and it would be in bold.  You can do any kind of html formatting you want on the server end but it is upto the mail client asto wether or not it will display it.

Let me know if you have any more questions or need any more help

That is the prolem. I generate a HTML code and when I send it OUTLOOK Express and other web free e-mail receive the code not the page!

Aseem,
RE: javascript Q."A=X, F=M..."

I can't believe you, I wrote a complete SearchAndReplae fuction in javascript for you, that supports conditional replaces, replacing preceeding n number of proceeding characters, plus an example HTML page for you, all for 39 points.

You seemed unable to read javacode, so even remarked the lines you would duplicate and change to perform additional search and replaces, debugged the functions (took an hour), sent it to you, and you grade a D!

You have no honor, you have no skill, and you can't spell, and your grammer stinks.


for all to read and judge them selves, this was my answer
---------------------------------------------------------------

Re-read your question, the answer I posted exacly answers your question, but I think you actually meant:

that for a given 'string' of chars in a given textarea, replace each occurance of 'A' with 'X' and replace each occurance of 'F' with 'M' and display the modified 'string' in a second textarea.

And I might add, that I can't believe I gave this to you for 34 points!

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT language = "JavaScript">
<!-- Begin Script
function SearchReplaceChar(sourceItem,searchItem,replaceItem,unlessPreceededBy,eatLeft) {
    sl=searchItem.length;
    rl=sl;
    if(eatLeft!=0) rl=(sl+eatLeft);
    ul=unlessPreceededBy.length;
    for (i = 0; i < sourceItem.length; i++) {
        doit=0;
        if(sourceItem.substring(i,(i+sl))==searchItem) {
            if(eatLeft!=0) i=(i-eatLeft);
            if(ul==0) doit=1;
            if(sourceItem.substring((i-ul),i)!=unlessPreceededBy) doit=1;
            if(doit==1) {
                c = sourceItem.substring(0,i);
                d = sourceItem.substring((i+rl),sourceItem.length);
                sourceItem = c + replaceItem + d;
                i=(i+(replaceItem.length-rl));
                }
            if(eatLeft!=0) i=(i+eatLeft);
            }
        }
    return sourceItem;
    }
function Check() {
    ToCheck = document.F.TA1.value;
    Checked = SearchReplaceChar(ToCheck,"A","X","",0);

//duplicating these two lines changing the "F" and the "M"
//for additional search and replaces
    ToCheck = Checked;
    Checked = SearchReplaceChar(ToCheck,"F","M","",0);

    document.F.TA2.value=Checked;
    }
    // -->
</SCRIPT>
