Default Need HTML help

I want to make something that looks like this

User name: then a blank box
Password: then another blank box (but goes into *** when typed in like a regular password.)

Then a button that says send.

And I want it so when people press the send button, it automatically sends me an e-mail with the user name and password they provided.

Is there a way to code this in HTML? I don't know any HTML so I'm not sure if this is possible, but this would be useful for me.

If anyone can help me out that would be great.

<FORM ACTION="../cgi-bin/mycgi.pl" METHOD=POST>

name: <INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME="realname"><BR>
password: <INPUT TYPE=PASSWORD NAME="mypassword">

<P><INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT VALUE="submit">
</FORM>

This should work for changing the text to ***** with regards to email what they have entered, you need a server side soloution or php code. As far as im aware there is no way you could do this through html or java script. I have it on my site and i use php mysql. do you have these available from your host?

Its just a freewebs account so i dont really know, it says on there site Does Freewebs Support Server-Side Includes (SSI)?
YES! We support Server-Side Includes free of charge.
But i dont know if thats what your talking about?


Edit:
What about MySQL, MSACCESS, and PHP?
Unfortunately, Freewebs does not offer these functions.

Nope..dang....

No any free hosting sites that do offer those?

That sounds great but I don't have a credit card, but I can get a visa gift card. I have used those to sign up for membership online for games so I bet it would work to sing up for that site.

Edit: would it be a regular .com address?

Go to www.davesite.com It is a great site for learning code. I totally love it. What you are trying to write is a form. A form is where people have to fill in boxes, similar to what you are describing here. His site will tell you how to do it in the interactive HTML tutorial for beginners. I hope this helps.

Yes it is a form, but i think his main issue was with passwording the site. Whilst visual elements of this can be done using html the actual workings of the password system and the logging of users etc cannot be done just using html
