  1. shuseel
    Please tell me how to design two inputs type=text that the question appear in the first input
    and the result appear in the second one?

  2. Very useful material added to his bookmarks. I tried many different services for creating online calculators, among which Contact Form 7 and uCalc plugin were the most popular. Pretty good tools for creating calculators.
