FORMS

By now you should be able to create a web page that looks good and is functional. However other than links it lacks interactivity with viewers.

This is where forms come in. Take this example

Car Purchase Plan
Total Car Price ()
Deposit ()
Annual Interest Rate: %
Loan Length Years
The costs
Outstanding loan ()
No of Payments Months
Deposit ()
Monthly Cost ()
