Or, how do I retrieve them from Javascript embedded within a ".htm"
file?

The only way to retrieve POST data is through a server-side language like
PHP or JSP. Perhaps you meant GET data which is appended to the URL when a
form is submitted.

Replace ".invalid" with ".uk" to reply by e-mail.

Thanks Mike. That's what I thought, but wasn't sure.

With client-side javascript? You don't.
You can only get querystring params (GET, not POST).

With server-side JScript/ASP, use
Request.Form("fieldname");
