After submitting the form data to server,  it will send the response to the client. This will update the current display on client side. However it is possible to retain the current display and ignore the response from the server. This can be achieved by targeting the response to a dummy frame. Sample code:

<FRAMESET ROWS="100%,*">
<FRAME SRC="Form.html" NAME="FormFrame">
<FRAME  SRC=about:blank NAME="DummyFrame" NORESIZE>
