You didn't mention which forms processor you're using, so I'm assuming you
are handling it yourself from a PHP scripting stnadpoint.

When I've had to do this I simply named my fields value_page1, value_page2,
etc.  Then in my form processing I did something like this (UNTESTED,
nonfunctional code):

foreach ($_REQUEST as $k => $v) {
   if (!preg_match('/^value_(.*)/', $k, $m)) continue; // skip any unrelated
GET/POST fields
   $pn = MakePageName($m[1]);
   # Now save your data using $v as the data itself and $pn as the page to
which to save it
   # Perhaps using ptvwrite() from Cookbook/Toolbox

If you're using some other forms processor (fox, pmforms, etc.) then
obviously this solution would be unhelpful...

Probably using value[page1] as your field name would be more elegant.
