How to create a common HTML page to display details of images selected from a previous page

In a web application (with HTML, javascript, CSS etc)I am creating a start up HTML page that contain lots of images.

Then when the user clicks any of the images, another window pops up with details of that selected image. This page contains
1. The larger version of the of image
2. Detailed description

I want to keep this second message window a common one for all images. So I plan to use
ajax to read details of each image from a file. Then build the contents of the page dynamically using javascript.

By problem is to tell the second window what image was selected from first page so that
I can pull information of that image from the file shwo build the second page dynamically.

So how should I send a value from one page to another in HTML?

It sounds like you want a modal popup (a div on the same page that you toggle on and off using javascript). This div can be loaded with the necessary image and details using an ajax call to the second page by using an url with a query at the end to hold the id of the image selected.

Example: http://www.mydomain.com/largeImage.html?id=img123

When the second page reads from the file using the image id to select the proper image and details, you can then use some javascript on that page to fill in the blanks, i.e large image path and details text.
