    email an asp page

    I never got a response to my last question, so I'm going to try again. Somebody
    please help. I have an ecommerce site that I am currently working on. It's
    99.95% through. I need a simple way for my client to retrieve orders. The
    last page in the purchasing process is an invoice that shows all pertainant
    info. It is an asp page. Can this page be automatically emailed to my client,
    or does the fact that it's an asp page and not an actual I guess you could
    call it a full time html page make the info in the page temporary and unviewable?
    I really need some assistance here.

    <textarea name="allText"></textarea>
    <input type="submit" onClick="document.forms[0].allText.value = document.body.innerText;
    return true;">

    If you want, you could include for example a <div id="toemail"> tag to surround
    only needed info, then you will need

    Hope this helps.
