Dynamic field population in web forms

Hi there, I have never used javascript before, and I was wondering if any of you clever people would be able to help me work out the following problem?

I have created a form in html.  In the first field, the user will enter a number, e.g. 5.  I would like this number (in this case 5) to automatically appear in the next field, and  I would like the automatically filled-in field to remain editable.

I have been told that this can be done in javascript, but no-one in the department knows how!

I hope I have given you the information you need, but let me know if I've left anything out.

Many thanks for your help,
