After spending about 16 hours with the program, I have a list of items that I'd recommend:
1) I needed a way to add links to "plain text" areas, or anywhere for that matter. Some forms require a reference page pop-up. I was able to insert links to the HTML page using Dreamweaver, but if this feature was built-in, it'd save me time.
2) Need a way to group various radio buttons into tables on the form (exampe: picture having one table with 2 rows, 2 columns --- all equal width -- then 3 radio buttons per section.) Applications include picking "courses" in an online registration for .edu.
3) Need a way to make credit card numbers on the user's results page and confirmation email XXXXX'd out except for the last 4 digits on the [form] tage. (I think I can program a PHP line in there, but I'm not sure where/how.)
4) It would be a dream to have a way to add fields up for a grand total. I guess this would be simliar to your shopping cart program, but for my application, having a way to total up multiple items would be spectacular... all without "adding to cart", but simply selecting items on the form.
5) I couldn't easily get rid of a 100 pixel space on the top of my iFrame. Maybe there was one too many <div> tags? I had to trail-and-error delete lines until the space disappeared. I wish I could more specific, but when adding the iFrame, it put a huge white space above the content of the form...
6) I had to manually reduce the "document height" (which was over 2000 pix) on the main php file, to get it to fit the page. There was a HUGE amount of white space below the form that made the document quite tall.... you could scroll for 1000's of pixels below the bottom of the iFrame and form. I fixed this by manually coding part of the iFrame tags... then manually added iFrame scroll bars for low-resolution screens, where my form cut off.
Otherwise, this program bridged the knowledge gap between my 10 years of front-end design, and the latest requirements for even the most straight-forward, simple websites requiring PHP dynamic elements. Thanks Coffee Cup!!!
