    Is there any way to implement security features for a standard html form to
    allow for collection of credit card information?

    thanks!

    No - but it isn't needed.

    You need to secure the data between the users computer and whatever or
    whomever processes it. This is done by submitting the form over http with
    ssl (https://example.com/cgi-bin/credit.cgi), and then keeping it secure
    throughout the rest of the journey (e.g. not then having the cgi sent it
    via unencrpted email!).
