Do you know any HTML codes for the feedback forms that can ecrypt the information for privacy?

You can't do that with HTML.

All that HTML does it layout the text so that it can be displayed in a web browser.

HTML can't encrypt text, you would have to use PHP or some other server-side language.

Exactly, I agree. You must use another more complex computer programming language and concepts to solve that kind of problems.

Encrypt the information where? During transmission or in the database?

Well, I guess he probably means the use of cryptography with the Secure Sockets Layer and Transport Layer Security cryptographic communication protocols.

Well, the "Message-Digest algorithm", version 5 is a partially insecure cryptographic hash function and not a cryptographical cipher algorithm. However, the uses are not equal at all.

I was going to say, I know that HTML definitely cannot be used for something as advanced as that. Definitely need something server-side (I hope I used that right).

Could you encrypt it with SSL like they do on bank submissions and stuff?

Yep you could use SSL or you could use PHP or some other server-side language.

I think SSL is a better choice, as users get confirmation the site is secure from their browsers, with padlocks and everything.

SSL is good for security, but more importantly, it creates confidence in the user.
