PHP JavaScript question

I have a sample php page which generates html like this:

<form name=abc method=post action="xyz.php">
<input type=text name='LName' value='lastname'>
<input type=text name='FName' value='firstname'>
<input type=text name='CDate' value='05/05/2006'>

<form name=def method=post action="pqr.php">
<!-- some html embedded here-->

<form name=rst method=post action="yyy.php">
<input type=submit name='Update Stuff'>
<input type=reset name='Clear stuff'>


I want to access the form variables "LName", "FName", "CDate" from "yyy.php" page when I click on the "Update" button. "LName", "FName" and "CDate" values can be changed before hitting the submit button.

How can I do this?

Remember the form seperation in the above html. There is no way I can change the form seperation as it includes complex UI changes which are not required.
