If you've ever tried to use a mailto form on your web page, you know that what you receive looks like quite a mess if you either can't or don't know how to use cgi or other ways to handle mailto forms. WWW Form Reader allows you to read mailto forms e-mailed to you from your web pages. With this software, you don't need to worry about cgi and perl scripts. You simply set up a mailto form on your web page and use WWW Form Reader to translate messages that are e-mailed to you from your web page mailto form. WWW Form Reader converts the received mailto form message to exactly the text that was originally entered by the sender of the message, even if, for example, an equation was included in the body of the message.
