Default Multi-Tab form

I'd need to create a multi-tab web based data entry form using ASP and JavaScript.

The form will be used for an online job application.

On tab will be for Name and Address, the second tab for work experience, the third for references, etc.

I would like the user to be able to jump from tab to tab filling out information as he desires. When the user finally clicks "save", javascript will edit all entered data.

I'm just not sure how to enable multiple tabs in a single form: i.e. how to allow the user to click on a tab and "overlay" the existing tab information with the new tab information.

Can i use frames to accomplish my goaL?

Thank you for your help.

What exactly do you mean by this?

you dont have to use a single form. You can go from page (tab) to page (another tab) placing a submit action on each link (each tab) posting information from each page (tab) into hidden form fields at the destination page (next tab they choose)

;;Can i use frames to accomplish my goaL?
I am not 100% clear on what your goal is. I do not like frames myself IMO they are old school and can be very problematic if not coded properly. Put 'why are frames so bad' into google and have a read. My appologies to those who like frames and get good results because they code them well.
