Very new to HTML and working on an assignment. After we made several pages (including the contact us page) we were told to create a new HTML page to be used as a return page. I can't find ANYTHING in my book about this and what I am finding on the web either talks about software that I can't use or other thing that don't pertain.

I am looking for a starting point. please help as I only have until Midnight Central to get this complete.

Return page? Afraid I've never heard of such a thing either. Was there a description of some kind of the purpose of this page?

Here are the instructions for the area in question.


We hope you will join us at The Downtown Diner for a meal.

Contact Us Page:

Include the logo in the #top. Provide navigation to your other pages. The format (color, font, alignment, etc.) is up to you. Feel frem to include additional image content on the page. In the #footer on each page, Include links to all of your other pages in a navigation bar, copyright symbol and year, as well as your name with a link to your email address.

You will need to create a form on this page that will allow a visitor to contact you with questions or comments. You will use the formmail.asp script on our server to process the form when submitted. This is the same script discussed in Module 6. Provide a way for the visitor to submit their first name, last name, email address, phone number, and their question or comment when filling out the form. Also allow them to specify if they want you to email or call them with your response.

Here are the minimum requirements when creating your form:
•Use a table to organize the form
•Use your email address as the recipient when testing the form. Once you are finished testing the form, change the recipient email address to your instructor's email address, which can be found in the syllabus.
•Set the subject line of the email address to be "INFO1311 Final Project Your Name" (replace Your Name with your first and last name)
•Use the redirect hidden tag as explained in the Usage Instructions for the formmail script to redirect the form to use a custom return page (see the example in the Formmail.asp Activity in Module 6). [/b]You will need to create a new HTML page to be used as the custom return page. When you create the custom return page, design it so that it looks like it "belongs" with the other pages in the Downtown Diner site.

Well, see the example in the Formmail.asp Activity in Module 6, I guess. They must mean the page that should be sent to the user after he has submitted the form. Depending on what it should contain you could either have the script just redirect to a static page or have it generate the whole page. Probably you should do what Formmail.asp does.
