I am using touch screen portable monitor to test my web page. when i tap on browser , i see either back or forward button on screen which takes me to previous or next page. how can disable forward and back buttons from screen browser. Is there any javascript to achieve this? I am using IE8 to test my web page.

I wouldn't know -- I'm use a Mac and an iPad.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
