    diable auto complete?

    How do you go about disabling auto complete on certain forms? For example, I don't want the browser remembering info entered on the secured pages of my checkout process.

    How would I go about doing that?

    Thanks

    If you are using Internet Explorer:

    Tools >> Internet Options >> Content >> AutoComplete...

    Also, do you have the Google toolbar installed? If you do, click on the google logo and select Options. Deselect "AutoFill Button" in the Accessories section.

    ah, i can't edit...

    My question wasn't clear.... I meant for people who visit my secure pages

    Can you force the client end to not have auto complete enable for that particular page?

    I've seen this done before, ie when you're entering credit info for a checkout.

    In your <FORM> tag, you can put autocomplete="off"
    Common sense isn't so common.

    do you know if that is an IE specific tag, or if it will work cross-browser?

    Thanks

    From what I read, it disables it in Firefox, but any form elements that were inputted from previous sessions can still be visible. Did that make sense? Haha.

    Not too sure about Opera (I don't use it).
