Simple form, Big Results

P: 2
I have a php form on a website that has a few simple fields like name, date, and a text box for comments. Once I hit the submit button on the form it sends the form information to a CVS file on the webserver.

On a different page I am trying to display the data from that CSV on the page with the most recent entries first and the oldest entry last with no more than 15 or 20 past records total. I can get the information to the CSV but I can't get it back to the other webpage. Furthermore I am wanting to format the font on the new page. Like changing the font size, color, and type for each piece information ie making the name display in 30px Cambria font and the comments display on a new line with 12px font. Any help would be awesome.

Simply the lack of knowledge on how to accomplish this task. I dont know how to have the web page access the csv onload and display the information on the page. I thought this could be accomplished using PHP but havent found a solution so far. The form getting the information to the CSV is working fine. I enter the information and it is stored on the CSV named filetoread.csv.

I know CSS and would like to control the way the information looks once it is displayed if possible. This is one of my first ventures into doing anything server side.

Thanks for your reply and I appreciate any help.
