var sidebar_align = 'right';
var content_container_margin = parseInt('290px');
var sidebar_width = parseInt('270px');
OK, this is somewhat hard for me, so any help would be great!
Here's what I need:
I want a drop down box, with two choice (ex: 1 & 2).
Then I have a form.
if the person chooses #1, so it should send the data to: www.myhost.com/cgi-bin/form1.pl
is he chooses #2, it should send the data to www.myhost.com/cgi-bin/form2.pl
P.S. It doesn't have to be a drop down box. Anyhthing that works is great!

(Not sure how this relates to web hosting, but...)
Very nice site with lots of stuff.
Thanks Duster & TK, you are right its not "hosting" but isn't it nice to simply be able to help someone sometimes. *s*
It is just my opinion that javascipt should not be used for: forms (effects within forms are fine), or navigation (including redirection based on making a choice such as the one you mentioned).
Javascipt is great, but not every browser works properly with all scripts. You can generally do these types of redirects/navigation with cgi (which will work with everything).
You have made a valid point, Chicken !
CGI is definitely the better way to go !!!
Unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there who don't want to bother upgrading to a newer version of their browser !!!
Also, VBScript isn't supported by Netscape at all. It is just ignored!!
Until there is total cross-browser compatibility with such scripting languages, such factors can be quite a nuisance once in a blue moon :O(
And total cross-browser won't happen so easily unless both Netscape and Microsoft open up their respective source codes for both these scripting languages.
And while it is a nuisance for some scripts (clock, random quotes, etc.), it becomes a major issue when it comes to navigation, etc.
I use a DHTML script for navigation on site I am working on, but what you can't see, is that behind it (hidden by the script's menus), are text links if the script doesn't load and display properly.
Just be sure if you use js this way that you have *some* way of handling non-js viewers.
