Help me create a simple HTML Calculator? :D

Hello, I am trying to create a very simple web interface which allows me to calculate the DOT mileage from point A to point B.

I have a CT DOT official mileage book which it rather difficult to browse through when I'm on the looks something like this :

So basically what I'm after is a way to enter all of the values into an HTML-style language so that I can get something like this :

Florida State DOT Mileage Calculator

...but for Connecticut. I saved that page and opened it up in CoffeeCup HTML editor in the hopes that I could reverse engineer it, but I was unsuccessful.

So I'm hoping someone can give me some pointers. This would be a stand-alone HTML page that I wouldn't be publishing to the web. I'd keep it on my desktop and use it offline, if that's important to anyone.

Thanks in advance for any info!

not just simple html unfortunately.

The site you would like to mimick is asp most likely using a database backend to pull mileage values from.

But this can be done and hosted on an XP machine with MS Access database with asp pages.
