Answer / sujendra kumar

<form action="target"> ... </form>
ACTION attribute. This is a required attribute. This
attribute specifies where the data collected by the form is
to be sent. The destination could be an email address, e.g.,
action="mailto:BillG@lunix.net"; a URL, e.g.,
action="../index.htm"; a CGI script on your web server,
e.g., action="/cgi-sys/formmail.pl"; or an Active Server
page that will process the data, e.g.,
action="mysearch.asp", to name a few possibilities. This is
the one truly complicated issue concerning forms, and will
be addressed below in its own section.
