I would like to see an example of code which could be embedded in html that would enter data into a simple sharepoint list.  For example if the fields were: Title, Date, Comments.  Be aware that I don't have access to 2007 designer.  I would like to create a custom interface to enter data.  With a simple example I could see the methodology to create my own custom solution.
Thanks

You'll have to use the Sharepoint Object Model. Create a reference to the Sharepoint DLL in your project.
In your code behind, create variables that create an instance of the Sharepoint site, web and list

dim spSite1 as new spsite("rootsite")
dim spweb1 as spweb=spsite.openweb("yoursubsite")
dim spyourlist as splist=spweb.lists("your list")
dim newitem as splistitem=spyourlist.add

add the item to your list using the code below
using spsite1
using spweb1
newitem("Title")=yourvalue
newitem("Date")=yourvalue
.
.
spweb1.AllowUnsafeupdates=true
newitem.update
spweb1.AllowUnsafeupdates=False

end using
end using

That's it !!

It's not possible to do this in Content Editor Web Part. You will have to create a custom webpart in Visual studio that can do this.

Sharepoint Designer 2007 is now free and perfect for this.  Are you not allowed to use it?

Right, it is a government network and they have restricted access to designer.  Working on it though.

It's not a dangerous product.  Only site owners or site designers are allowed to use it on Sharepoint.  So, as long as your Sharepoint permissions are configured properly it's not dangerous.
