Send Page As Email - for Form that keeps erasing data

P: 1
Hi all,

I have been searching so hard for the answer to this, hopefully some of you all can help.

I have created an HTML file with various forms - also included CSS and some javascript for checkboxes and autofill of Identical forms, as well as pulldown menus. When I fill out a form and (on the IE browser pull down menu) select: File --> Send --> Page by Email, the page goes into MS outlook (as it should) - However, all of the data is then erased!! AUGHH!!!

Secondly, when the page starts a spell check it freezes (i'm guessing because of the JavaScript code, which I placed in the <head> tag of the Html.

#1 - How can I get the IE "send page by email" function to work and keep all of the data so that it can be emailed to several people?

#2 - How can I effectively re-structure the JavaScript so that it will not make the MS Outlook freeeze? (would I now place the JavaScript in an external .js file in order to take it out of the html file completly?)


PS - I don't want to use any server-side scripts (I am only using the html for convenience - because it fills out forms, provides checkboxes and is a user-friendly way of passing along information) Also, I would like it to be as simple as filling out the html (**by the way, the html is not online - it will be accessed from our public drive) - after completing, I would like to just send page by email with all the data included as filled out.

Thanks in advance
