Creating a very simple email register textbox and button

I would like to know the code i could use to have  a textbox on my website that a user can put in their email address in, click on a button that says "register"  and then have the email of the user sent to another email account of my choosing.

The idea is to create a registration list of emails that will be stored in an email that I own.

The only requirements i need is

1. A text box
2. A button that sends the info found in the text box to a email
3. That it works in xhtml 1.0 stict and css

Save the code below as hielo.asp and try it. You will need to provide a valid email address.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
 "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title></title>
</head>
<body>
<%
If "Register" = Trim(Request.Form("register")) Then
	Set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
	myMail.Subject="Sending email with CDO"
	myMail.From="mymail@mydomain.com"
	myMail.To="someone@somedomain.com"
	myMail.TextBody=Request.Form("email")
	myMail.Send
	set myMail=nothing
	Response.Write("<h1>Thank You</h1>")
Else
%>
<form action=<%=Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME")%>' method="post" onsubmit="if(email.value==''){alert('Please provide email');return false;}">
	<div>
		<div>Email: <input type="text" name="email" id="email" /></div>
		<div><input type="submit" name="register"  value="Register"/></div>
	</div>
</form>
<%
End If
%>
</body>
</html>

hieloCommented:
It makes not difference if the page is html or asp. The potential problems you would encounter would be based on the HTML content that the browser sees/receives. An ASP file contains SERVER code AND (typically) HTML code. The browser does NOT see/receive the SERVER code, so the ASP code will not affect your page. The only thing that will affect your page is the output of the ASP page - meaning the overall data that the asp sends to the browser.
