Leet Nexus action going on here... hee!

In which I make a form suitable for helping a harried secretary get books ordered on time and correctly


Web references used:

http://www.bignosebird.com/formls1.shtml

The raw code, probably needing debuggery:



<FORM ACTION="mailto:[shadesong]@[work].edu" METHOD=POST>

<INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="DESKCOPY" VALUE="YES">YES! I do want a desk copy of this textbook for myself!
<INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="DESKCOPY" VALUE="NO">NO! I do not want one, Sam-I-am! I do not like desk copy spam! </p>

The sort-of finished thingy, with the post action removed

Your e-mail address






Now, I just need to write JavaScript validation on the required fields... oh, and probably "how many copies do you want, Dog Breath?" would be a good option. Dog Breath optional.
