The reason is that HTML doesn't allow you to do this. Coffee Cup has some inexpensive software to create forms and handle responses. Or, if you think you can handle some basic CGI, there are programs that will process your input for you.

The content is the main source for the website.Their full ability may given in the content.The content updation must be kept in the regular work for the designer.The simple and understandable text also is an advantage for the content.

Hi,

You must use either asp or php codes for saving the the information from the visitors. You can also use Content Management System Platform, to easily create a form for adding visitor information. Try checking on, square space and wordpress. You can also check Joomla!
