<html><head>
</head>
<body>
<p id="Vlist">
visitor one<br />
visitor two<br />
visitor three<br />
visitor four<br />
visitor five<br />
visitor six<br />
</p>
<form>
enter your name:
<input type="text" name="newV">
<input type="button" value="Add to list"
onClick="document.getElementById('Vlist').innerHTML+=this.form.newV.value+'<br />'">
</form>
</body>
</html>


That will display it on teh screen, but it will not save it permanently unless you send ot the server and save the information with scripting.

do th eform part this way:

<form action="yourscript.cgi">
enter your name:
<input type="text" name="newV">
<input type="button" value="Add to list"
onClick="document.getElementById('Vlist').innerHTML+=this.form.newV.value+'<br />'">
<input type="submit" value="Save list">
</form>

But will still not save it you have to have a server side script to add the new name.

First, is sounds like you need a small database of vistior names.  Access, MySQL, DB2, SQL....whatever you've got.  Or you could use the file scripting and work with Text files...but I like DB's

Here is a quick ASP / Access version.

---------------
<% Language"VBscript" %>
<% strConn= "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;DATA SOURCE=MyDB.mdb"
<%
If Request("Submit') <> ""  then
set Command1 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
Command1.ActiveConnection = strConn
Command1.CommandText = "INSERT INTO  Names  VALUES " & Request("NewName")
Command1.CommandType = 1
Command1.CommandTimeout = 0
Command1.Prepared = true
Command1.Execute()

End if
%>

<%
Dim GetNames
Dim GetNames_numRows

Set GetNames = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
GetNames.ActiveConnection = strConn
GetNames.Source = "Select Names from tblNames ORDER BY Names"
GetNames.CursorType = 0
GetNames.CursorLocation = 2
GetNames.LockType = 1
GetNames.Open()

GetNames_numRows = 0
%>

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>My Visitors</title>
</head>

<body>
<table width="100" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <%
While ((Repeat1__numRows <> 0) AND (NOT GetNames.EOF))
%>
  <tr>
    <td><%=(GetNames.Fields.Item("Name").Value)%></td>
  </tr>
  <%
  Repeat1__index=Repeat1__index+1
  Repeat1__numRows=Repeat1__numRows-1
  GetNames.MoveNext()
Wend
%>

</table>
<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
  <table width="100" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <tr>
      <td>Add Your Name </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td><input name="NewName" type="text" id="NewName">
      <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit"></td>
    </tr>
  </table>
</form>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
</body>
</html>
<%
GetNames.Close()
Set GetNames = Nothing
%>


you can tear it apart but bacially here is the outline:

Declare your DB location
If sumbitted insert a new record
Get all records
Display all records
Create a form
Input fields and submit button
Close the recordset
