I wasnt to sure where to post this. there really should be a web development forum. Anyways I wanted to make a little .html file and use personal websharing to host an email list. That way I can share my email list and access it form any computer.
i know how to write some basic html , but what i need help on is i want to be able to add ,edit and/or delete email address from the browser. could i just write it in html, or do i need to write a cgi script or something even better. how do i write the script if i do have to and how do i add it the html and the server so it will work?
thanks for the help

i just wanted to clear up what i mean. when i say email list i mean an address book with clickable links that will launch the email program just like the <mailto> line in html does.

You can do this, but you should learn something about HTML and FORMS works. The cgi required is not too hard to build.
Contact me directly if interested. Can do this in C, RealBasic, Applescript, etc.
