Today many web developers strive to increase user friendliness and increase the interactivity of the web site, so the users feel wanted. You can run a website using any language, either ASP.NET or PHP, but still the front-end also known as the interface which the user sees is the same. The method of sending and receiving data to a script on a website is accomplished with the use of HTML forms.
The fundamental idea behind the HTML form is the same as that of a paper form; it is used to get information, by presenting some related sections of a page where the user has to input information. In the next few chapters you will learn several ways in which you can create a form to get the user to enter information, like typing in, selecting it from a list or even by ticking boxes. HTML will handle the form lik a paper form through which you can use these information.

In the following HTML tutorial you will learn how to create HTML forms for use with server-side scripts and other uses.
