HTML Form variables carried from page to page

Hello experts,

I have a 1-page form that I need to turn into 4 pages.  Essentially, it is a very large application form that I have all on one page, and need to break it down into several manageable-sized pages with a "Next" button at the bottom of each page.  

On the final page, ALL form fields from the previous pages need to be collected and submitted:

So, for example on page 1 we have:

City: <input type="text" name="city">
State: <input type="text" name="state">
Zipcode: <input type="text" name="Zipcode">

and on page 2 we have:

Country: <input type="text" name="Country">
Phone: <input type="text" name="phone">

and on page 3 we have:

ShiptoState: <input type="text" name="shiptostate">
shiptozipcode: <input type="text" name="shiptozipcode">

... when you click the submit button on the third page, how do I get the variables from pages one and two to be submitted with the third?  

I thought of creating hidden form fields on the third page, but wasnt sure how to get the value to be the field from the previous pages.


Thanks in advance!
