You don't. Your application has to remember the filled in values and when 
presenting page1.php again it pre-populates the form with the 'remembered' 
values. The easiest way to remember the values is to use sessions.

Or alternatively you can one of the dozens of form validation classes that are 
available (www.phpclasses.org et al) to do the donkey work for you.
