I suggest a rough and plain solution : to use the email !
(the example quoted below is OK with Ie4, Ne4, Ne3, because it doesn't involve any javascript. If some fields are compulsory, or are to be checked, it's a bit more difficult, because Netscape doesn't run an action="mailto:" via JavaScript).

e.g. :
<FORM NAME = "FormBul" METHOD="Post" ACTION="mailto: ... the email address ...?subject=Bulletin"
<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Contact">
<table border="0" cellpadding="5" >
       <font color="#FF0000" size="2" face="Arial">Stand name</font>
    <td width="70%"><font face="Arial">
      <input type="text" size="42" Name="Stand1"></font>
    <td><font color="#FF0000" size="2" face="Arial">Corporate name</font>
    <td><font face="Arial">
      <input type="text" size="42" Name="CorporateName"></font>
    <td><font color="#FF0000"
       size="2" face="Arial">Address</font>
    <td><font face="Arial">
      <input type="text" size="42" name="Address1">
... etc ...
<input type="Submit" value ="Envoi" >

The email will look like :

CorporateName=Cycles informatiques
Address1=11 rue de la Paix
etc. (of course, you can format it prettier !)
