Why not just use a simple javascriptless form?
It wll also work for more users by default (javascript are more and more
disabled by users).

This is how the google form once in the time looked like:

<form name="google" method="get" action=""
type="text" name="q" size="25" maxlength="255" value=""> <input
value="Google Search" name="sa" type="submit">
<input value="0" name="filter" type="hidden"></form>

Here the form will take target values.
