I have an external .js file to my webpaage.  Can i change the value of these
variables from my htm page, so that they are changed for good.

ie -  i know this wont work, but it is an example.

var alpha = "This is some text"

<form name="changer" method="get" action="externalFile.js">
<input name="alpha" type="text" id="alpha" value="this is some new text that
will completely replace the old text in the file">
