Hi there all

Seth - what I'd like to add to my site is probably in the realm of CGI. What I want to do is create a form with basically yes/no questions (which I can do in FrontPage, of course) but instead of the info just going to a file for me to read, I'd like to be able to have a program take the answers and add up all the yes/nos and be able to give an interpretation back to the person who filled out the questionairre.

I have in mind a simple and fun personality test, on the order of Meyers-Briggs that I have been using with some success for the past couple years. I give it to friends, but I'd like to put it on the Net.

If I can figure out how to do it correctly, I can have a program tally up the responses and give the person their personality type "in real time," without me having to tabulate the questions myself.

It it quite possible that this is beyond the scope of anything but an expensive program, but I'm curious to see if it is possible.

pax yall

Thanks to all for all the info being shared above as well!
