The form data doesn't have to be lost. You can post it to an
intermediate script that creates the PDF and holds the data. You could
use Javascript to change the original form slightly so that it opens in
a new window (set a target attribute) and then remove it immediately
after. There are quite a few ways you can do all of this.
