Can you use CGI/ASP if not then your only solution will be with Javascript.

HTML don't accept inputs. You have to use some sort of PROCESSING, which means Javascript, or CGI and its relatives (ASP, CFML, PHP, etc.)

If you use javascript, cookies would probably be the easiest. Just set the cookie when the button is clicked on and retrive it when the next page loads.

Something like this:

in a.html:

<form method="get" name="form1">
<input type="text" name="textfield1">
<input type="button" name="button1" value="Open B"           onClick="open_b_func(this.form)">

<script language="JavaScript">
function open_b_func(theform) {
   tf1 = theform.textfield1;

   mynewwindow ="B.html","mynewwindow","");
   // Provided that the first form in b.html has a field called textfield1.
   mynewwindow.document.forms[0].textfield1.value = tf1.value;
   // alternatively, you could construct the html for the new window here,
   // and write it out using:
   // mynewwindow.document.write("<html><head></head><body><form><input    // type=\"text\" value=\" + tf1.value + "\"></form></body></html>");
