How to save form data before it is submitted?

I have a form that faculty need to fill out but it is very long and some stop before they can finish it and then have to re-enter all the fields they previously populated. So my boss asked if there was a way to set up the form so there is a 'save form' button and a 'submit' button, so our faculty don't have to complete the form in one sitting.

I accomplished this roughly using cookies but no 'save form' button. It does it all in the background, but my boss says some faculty are still having issues because of their cookie settings.

Is there another way to accomplish this? in Javascript? PHP? Perl?

Any help would be appreciated.

Using php/perl or any other server side scripting language you could store the form info in a database for later retrieval.

Let AJAX and PHP do the work.
