You can add hidden fields to HTML forms:
<input name=field_name type=hidden value=some_value>

it works like an usual text input with one difference: it's hidden and user can't change the value.

With the best regards,

there is no difference between type="hidden" and type="text" of INPUT tag besides user interaction. usage, retrieving with scripts, get or post are the same.
or what do you have in mind?

here goes an example:

<form name="myform" ...>
<input type="hidden" name="myfield" value="hi there">

to retriebe the value via javascript do this:

<script language="javascript">
<!--
myvalue = document.myform.myfield.value
alert(myvalue)
//-->
</script>
