Is there a way to create an html form that can convert a list to a string? Example: I'm trying to create form where someone would input
one
two
three

and the form would convert it to:

one,two,three

Is this possible with just html or is script language needed?

HTML can't do anything like that.  You would need a script to do that.

Are you talking about the output that would be generated when the form is submitted, as a form of a e-mail notification?

In any case, you need a script to do that, the HTML part is simply the front-end side that shows the fields.

You can get the desired result with PHP, maybe explain how / where you are reading the output / results?

Ideally, user sees the form and pastes in a list then the list is converted to string and the user and copy it right from the website

??  HTML can't do that.  It can't process or rearrange strings or numbers.  That requires a script.

greetings LN41 , ,  You say that this arrangement  -
one
two
three

Open in new window

is a "LIST" , and this arrangement -
one,two,three

Open in new window

is a "STRING" or what you want to be the result of a conversion, , and as sated already, ANY and ALL conversions will require an Operation Language as browser Javascript so code signals can be written to tell the script what to get - "the text in the LIST box" - and more importantly, what and how to make operations to change , replace, rearrange the LIST text to a new text "String", , for instance what would need to be done is there is a comma in the LIST elements, like -
one,1
two,2
three,3
