    <p><b>Enter the value to store:</b></p>
    <input type="text" id="data" name="input"><br/>
    <button id="b1">Store entered data</button>
    <button id="b2">View data </button><br/><br/>
    <div id="display"></div>
     // We are setting user data to data tag 
         var d=($("#data").val());
      //Displaying data after accessing from data tag 
         $("#display").html($("#data").data("userdata")) ;
