You mean let's say messageview.html looks like this:
[code]
<html>
<head>
<title>Something</title>
</head>
<body>
[/code]

And you want to have a form so when you enter: "1,2,3", messageview.html will become:
[code]
<html>
<head>
<title>Something</title>
</head>
<body>
1,2,3
[/code]


??

In that case, I recomend you to do something like this:
make messageview.html a php file (for example messageview.php?), and make it look like this:
[code]
<html>
<head>
<title>Title</title>
</head>
<body>
<?php include("messages.txt"); ?>
</body>
</html>
[/code]

Now, Google for a tutorial about php and files, and how to write to files. Use that tutorial to make your script, that will write what ever you want to add into messages.txt. Every time someone opens messageview.php, he will see everything that was added with the form.
I am not going to make the script for you, find one on google.

[code]
<?php
$PreCheckComplete=0;
if ($_POST['submit']) {
  $Error='';

  $Name = $_POST['name'];
  if (!$Name) $Error .= "&bull; Name is a required field.<br>";
  if (strip_tags($Name) != $Name) $Error .= "&bull; You are not allowed to use html in your name.<br>";
  if (strlen($Name) < 3) $Error .= "&bull; Your name must atleast contain 3 characters.<br>";

  $Email = $_POST['email'];
  // TODO: perform an regex on email when provided.
  if ($Email) {
     if (strip_tags($Email) != $Email) $Error .= "&bull; You are not allowed to use html in your e-mail.<br>";
  }
 
  $Website = $_POST['website'];
  // TODO: perform an regex on website when provided.
  if ($Website) {
     if (strip_tags($Website) != $Website) $Error .= "&bull; You are not allowed to use html in your website address.<br>";
  }

  $Comment = $_POST['comment'];
  if (!$Comment) $Error .= "&bull; Comment is a required field.<br>";
  if (strip_tags($Comment) != $Comment) $Error .= "&bull; You are not allowed to use html in your comment.<br>";
  if (strlen($Comment) < 10) $Error .= "&bull; Please make sure your comment atleast contain 10 characters.<br>";

  if ($Error) {
     echo "<div class='Error'>$Error</div>";

     if ($Email) $Entry .= "<br>e-Mail: <a href='mailto:" . $Email . "'>".$Email."</a>";
     $Entry .= "</div>";
     if ($Website) $Entry .= "<a href='http://".str_replace('http://', '', $Website)."'>$Website</a>";
     $Entry .= "<div class='comment'>$Comment</div>";
     $Source = "messageview.html";
     if (!($Resource = fopen($Source, "a"))) {// a because we always want to add data on the last line..
        $Error .= "WARNING: Could not open file.<br>";
     }
     if (!flock($Resource, LOCK_EX)) {
        $Error .= "WARNING: Could not lock file.<br>";

     }
     if ($Error) {

     }
  }
