Hi Jenny,

Forms looks nice!

In order to capture the slider data, you need to add hidden input types to the
form, one for each slider. Then, when the slider value changes, you set the
value of the associated hidden input to the slider value. When the form is
submitted, the values of the hidden inputs, because they are input types,
will be submitted. If you change your form action from a mailto to a script
url, the form will be submitted to the script. Of course, you'll need a script
on the server to handle the input. It's possible to change the process a bit
with javascript but you'll ultimately need something on the server side to
receive and process the data. You can store the data in a database, email it
to yourself, show it to the user, all of the above, etc, etc.

I've managed to create a contact/submission form with multiple sliders that looks nice, but I don't know how to capture the slider data in a form submit. In fact, I don't even know the best way to submit the form (to myself). I can create a regular html mailto: form action, but I would rather have the site just send the form data to me, rather than take users into an email program.
