This is little strange because norammly come here to ask how to diable browser back button. I have following code in my header.jsp which is included in all my jsp's

<meta http-equiv="Expires" CONTENT="0">
<meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" CONTENT="no-cache">
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

Now even if I comment this code my browser back buttondont work. How can I enable my browser back button. Is there anything else that can be done to prevent a user from using back Button that I can find and remove from my code.

I see no JSP dimension to this question, so it has been moved to the HTML forum.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
