  • ... = the tags that denote a form, surprisingly. Not strictly necessary, unless you want it to do something, but you should have it there, as it's good practice.

    = the tag that denotes a textbox (default/type="text"), checkbox (type="checkbox", IIRC), radio button (type="radio", give more than one the same name to group them together), button (type="button"), reset button (type="reset"), submit button (type="submit") or password box (type="password"). Value attribute holds the default value for textboxes and password fields, or the text that shows up on the various buttons.

    ... = multiline textbox, like the reply box. The default value is held between the tags.

    ... = select box. tags denote the various options, size tells it how many options to show at once, and the multiple attribute tells it that you can select more than one at a time.
