Hi,

I have a graphic with a rollover for site navigation on each page. I
put the page to go back to in the rollover javascript.

My question is, is it possible to put in some code that will refer the
visitor back to whatever page they came from rather than one I
specify?

The rollover is combined with a tooltip script to make matters fun
(below). However, I'm quite happy to lose the tooltip to have the link
perform as a back button.

Thanks

David

<a href="../index.asp"
onmouseover="document.images['link1'].src=img2.src;
showtip(this,event,'Back to home page');"
onmouseout="document.images['link1'].src=img1.src; hidetip()";><img
src="bhome.gif" name="link1" border=0></a>
