Hi, i am building a website offering translation services. I was thinking of adding Secure Online Transaction pages with an order and an invoice for clients to fill in with their data and text to translate. How can i find the scripts to paste in my HTML pages and how much would it cost me?

Thanks for your kind attention.

A bit complex than imagined ! Sep 15, 2004

Setting up and launching a web page with static content is easy job which requires almost no code level knowledge.

However, when it comes to pages with dynamic content, the task becomes rather complex. In order to design form elements that involve validation, storage, update, etc., in short, that involve some kind of data processing, the webmaster (you) should have a sound code level knowledge on applets, XML, HTML, DHTML, CGI, PHP, ASP, javascript, etc. Also, the webmaster needs a sound knowledge on web-enabled database applications such as mysql.

Then it comes to cross browser issues. Will your forms be visible to and functional with all major types of browsers that your potential clients may be using (Netscape, IE, Opera, etc.)?

What about security problems? Will your client's credit card numbers, bank details, etc. be vulnerable to attacks? Can any smart guy peeking your online activity get all these things easily? Does your page has the necessary tools to secure and protect your client's vulnerable data against such attacks?

Nevertheless, you may use some simple but functional forms with a certain degree of validation capability, even with a certain degree of security. Here are a couple of links where you can get "free" codes for such forms. I am sure you will find what you are searching form.

And use them at your own risk!
(I use them and many other not directly, but as a learning tool!)

Also, you can get trial software that helps you to add dynamic content to your web page:
