posting an online form

..
Here's a sample of my form...

http://greatlakeschorus.org/vform2.html

There's a few things I want to do. Now it's set up to email me the
rough data via the users email client but I see other sites where you
just click send and the website does the rest, no user email client
like outlook. How do I set it up like that? Better yet I want the
form to be sent to me as it appears at the link, as an html. Is that
possible? Finally something else I want to do with a form like this
is let the user post it directly to the site in it's html format and
perhaps also allow them to come back and edit it later if they want.
I'm just a novice, I only know a little html and java and what I've
learned is from cut/pasting code while using a nvu wysiwyg editor.
Any help would be appreciated.

Michael

Stop. Get a server side process.

A server side process can store the data in a database and pull it out
on demand.
