Having 2 forms/ Storing form data onto sessions?

I am trying to find a way to have two forms on the same page. However
when I hit the submit button on one form the data that had been
entered on the other form disappears. Is there a way to transfer the
data on a form perhaps onto sessions? I tried having one form wrap
onto another but it got messy and would not work.

An example is where there are two forms one to submit a message and
one to upload files. Suppose I would start writing a message on the
first form and then I upload a file using a second form. After
uploading the file the message of the text area field would
disappear.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

  1. nesting tags is invalid HTML and will never work

  2. only thing i can think of to solve this is using AJAX to submit the
    form.
