I am building a horoscope website and I would like to have users type in their date of birth and have a page appear that tells them what day they were born on and what there astrological sign is.  Example: they type in 3/11/48 and they get a page that tells them:

   "YOU ARE A PISCES AND YOU WERE BORN ON THURSDAY"
or
   "YOU WERE BORN ON THURSDAY AND YOU ARE A PISCES"

Is there any kind of scripts out there that can do this?

Thanks for the help.

Charlie

I copied each page designation into separate html pages using notepad.  Meaning "Page1" information went into an html page called page1.html and the same with the "page2" information.  When I launch the first page everything comes up fine.  I enter the date information and hit the submit button and I get a message saying "The page cannot be displayed." Any suggestions?  Should page2 have a different name? Awaiting you most valued help.

I found my error.   I had page2 named page2.html instead of page2.htm.  I changed the name ofthe page and it works great.  I doubled the points to show my appreciation on what a great job you did.  Thanks so very much.  And keep up the great work!
