Well, FrontPage has done this for a form with a submit button:

<form method="POST" action="--WEBBOT-SELF--">
 <!--webbot bot="SaveResults" U-File="_private/form_results.txt"
 S-Format="TEXT/CSV" S-Label-Fields="TRUE" -->

EVERYTHING  after the <form method="POST" is specific to Microsoft.
Does that look like "standard" HTML to anyone?

FP produces bloated, FP specific code.

If you want to learn HTML, get a good book and spend sometime with Notepad.

On the other hand, fixing all the FP specific HTML would be a lesson in how
NOT to code HTML.
