Adding some more input elements to your form
It looks like the server script isn't going to let us get very far without telling it the
beans we want, as well as the bean type (ground or whole). Let's add the bean
selection first by adding a <select> element to the form. Remember that the
<select> element contains a list of options, each of which becomes a choice in
a drop-down menu. Also, associated with each choice is a value; when the form is
submitted, the value of the chosen menu option is sent to the server. Turn the page
and let's add the <select> element.
