first of all, your input field has to be within a form... and make a submit button...like this

<form action='mypage.php' method='post'><input type="text" name="HTMLname" /><input type='submit' name='submit' value='submit'></form>

what this code means is that when you hit the submit button, it will load "mypage.php" and give $_POST['HTMLname'] the value that is enteredso on mypage.php you could have the code

<?php$PhpVarName=$_POST['HTMLname']; echo "Filled in name : ".$PhpVarName;?>

and make sure you spell stuff correct....
