Passing variables to a form that I don't own

Prefill form on a "foreign" page

I have never really programmed in javascript and have not time to learn it.. I would greatly appreciate any help:

I have a page with some variable (say address, email, phone) that I would like to pass to a form on a page that I don't own. Basically pre-fill the form with the information I have.

I thought about having two frames, one with my page and one with the "foreign" page. I will then somehow have Javascript pass the variables from one fram to the other.

Does anyone know how I should proceed?

Get the owner of the foriegn page to read querystring parameters to fill in the form. Then pass the info that way. If it is on another server or domain then yours then I don't think there is anything else you can do.
