I use GoDaddy Windows hosting. I checked, and they provide the following ASP script for handling data from forms. It takes all of the form fields, sorts them by alphabetical order, and returns all of the data in a fairly raw form.

I would like to take this output and add some formatting to it, because it the form has about 60 fields and would be difficult to read otherwise. Where in this script would I start to add in the appropriate formatting? (Bolds, h1, Underlines, etc). (I have little experience in ASP programming, but feel like if I got off to the right start I would be OK)

Dim landing_page, host_url
Dim fso, outfile, filename, dirname, myFolder
Dim req_method, key, value
Dim bErr, errStr, bEmpty
On Error resume next
bErr = false
bEmpty = true
errStr = ""
Set fso = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
host_url = Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_HOST")
req_method = Request.ServerVariables("REQUEST_METHOD")
dtNow = Now()
filename = Server.MapPath("ssfm")
dirname = filename
filename = filename & "/gdform_" & DatePart("M", dtNow) & DatePart("D", dtNow) & DatePart("YYYY", dtNow) & DatePart("N", dtNow) & DatePart("S", dtNow)

Function FormatVariableLine(byval var_name, byVal var_value)
Dim tmpStr
tmpStr = tmpStr & "<GDFORM_VARIABLE NAME=" & var_name & " START>" & vbCRLF
tmpStr = tmpStr & var_value & vbCRLF
tmpStr = tmpStr & "<GDFORM_VARIABLE NAME=" & var_name & " END>"
FormatVariableLine = tmpStr
end function

Sub OutputLine(byVal line)
outfile.WriteLine(line)
end sub

if err.number = 0 then
Set outfile = fso.CreateTextFile(filename, true, false)
if err.number <> 0 then
bErr = true
errStr = "Error creating file! Directory may not be writable or may not exist.<br>Unable to process request."
else
if(req_method = "GET") then
for each Item in request.QueryString
if item <> "" then
bEmpty = false
key = item

Response.Write " An Error Occurred creating mail message. Unable to process form request at this time."
