If I understand you correctly you want a user to input some data on a form
on one page, and then have his data formatted on a new page ... hmm. If you
use frames it is posiible to refer to form values on a dirrerent frame. You
could divide the page in half, and have the user input data into a form on
one half then as he leaves each field the other side of the page can update
it self. Use stuff like

parent.frameName.form[n].formName.value to access the user input

and onChange("doUpdate()")

for some example of how to do this check out the JavaScript index page, or

PS: If you need more help feel free to write me personally.
