Dear Experts,
  I liked to create a form page, which prompts to enter Name, Age, Date of Birth, Address, Place, Zip Code etc and this data needs to send as email to the site owner.  The server we are using the Static Web Server which supports only HTML, (ASP, JSP, CGI etc. is not supporting).  Please give a good solution.

Regards
Suresh

There is no *good* solution.

You _need_ server side scripting to process forms properly.

Your choices are pretty much (in order of preference):

(1) Move to better hosting

(2) Get third party hosting for the form handling component: http://www.cgi-resources.com/Remotely_Hosted/Form_Processing/

(3) Use the mailto: action for forms: http://www.isolani.co.uk/articles/mailto.html

I concur.

Use server-side scripting.

Unless you can make a mailto: link and tell somebody to enter the relevant details in their email program such as Microsoft Outlook.

Assuming they have an email program such as Microsoft Outlook (or even one thats good :D ). Some people use webmail systems, and mailto: links and webmail are awkward, which means more work for the user, which means more people won't bother.
