>>I was looking into using a form that would give them feedback once they
submit it--however, I don't know if our IT group can handle the requests
that I am going to have to make (don't ask). The other option is to use a
MAILTO: form--however, I can't find any freeware/shareware decoders for
MAILTO form output (maybe I'm just not asking the right question).

If you're looking to do a simple multiple-choice type form, it really couldn't be more simple. There really isn't that much Perl code needed to get the answers in, parse them and print a page that gives feedback. (It wouldn't be hard to mail it either--if you're using a Unix based server.)

If you can't find anything that will suit your needs, I can write a boilerplate form, script and instructions on how to edit it (I'd be doing it on my "leisure" time, so it may take a couple of days to get to it). If anyone else is interested in something like this, I can post the boilerplate test form on my server.

Like I said, this is not hard. There's a lot of good Perl script resources available on the Internet (head here: to shop around.)
