I'm just wondering how I would go about having the submit button e-mail the HTML form itself (with all fields filled out) in a zip file or whatever?

You would have edit your server side script to generate an html page and email it to you. How you do this depends on the server side scripting language you are using.

It will send you an email with the information in it, doesn't zip it.  I'm not sure if that can be done...I'll look around for something.

I'd prefer it as an html attachment, or some type of "acceptable" print format...
