passing data between forms.

Can anyone tell me the best way to pass form entries from one page to the
other just using javascript?

The only ways I've found are coockies or using hidden fields to store the
data and passing it page to page via as URL parameters with GET.

I have 7 pages, 60 questions - some text areas with 160 char capacity, and
users have to be able to jump from one page to another using next, previous
buttons, or tabs.

Anyone advise me on the best method?

Thanks.

you could also use session variables, post method or store the code back end
in xml.

I'd rather use PHP and store the info on the server, but I've been asked to
try and keep most of the work client-side. Session looks interesting. May
look at cookies if my files end up being too big.

Thanks.
