Submitting other elements outside a form with a form

I have a form on a jsp and it submits ok to a servlet. However I want some additional parameters to be submitted along with the form (These parameters are outside the form) - for instance some of the values present in a label tag. One way that i think this could be accomplished by is setting onsubmit= "AttachParameters()" and the value of those parameters will be inserted in hidden fields in my form. Are there any better ways ???

That's the way that I'd go about it.
