INSERTING COMMENT/REPLY BOX INTO...

i am trying to put a comment box with reply underneath [so I, the web owner] can reply to the commentor and also take out offensive comments.

I found a code snippet on the web which I inserted into my website which did put a comment box on my site with a submit mouse link which did not go anywhere: I tried to use this comment box from own computer and also from my wife's computer with two different results but both a NoGo, i.e, "about blank" etc

Here is the snippet:
<!-- HTML Codes by Quackit.com
<style type="text/css">
textarea.html-text-box {background-color:#ffffff;background-image:url(http://);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-attachment:fixed;border-width:1;border-style:solid;border-color:#cccccc;font-family:Arial;font-size:14pt;color:#000000;}
input.html-text-box {background-color:#ffffff;font-family:Arial;font-size:14pt;color:#000000;}
</style>
<form method="post" action="http://"><textarea name="comments" cols="30" rows="5" class="html-text-box">Comments here...</textarea><br><input type="submit" value="Submit" class="html-text-box"><input type="reset" value="Reset" class="html-text-box"></form>
<p></p> -->

Can anyone tell me how to get it to work, something else I must modify on my site, etc? I know HTML basics but not cascading style sheets, Java, etc.

Hi Jan,
What I would do is a have a protected page that displays the comments and allows you to delete, edit, or comment back.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
