    You can do something like this in your index.html.
    I've tried it just once and it worked, but I'm no expert in this.
    So when you call the index.html but something like
    <a href="index.html?x=1">
    after the function you should be able to call the variable
    x and get the value 1.

    var URL = unescape(window.document.location);

    if (URL.indexOf("?") > -1) {
    //whether the location contains a "?" or not

    var list1 = URL.split("?");
    //split at "?";
    var list2 = list1[1].split ("=");
    //split at "=";
    var list2[0] = list2[1];

    I hope it works.
