We haven't ignored your question... I'm just
researching how to do this... The servlet API has access to a

history object that has back() and forward() methods so
maybe there's something useful there.

You can try catch in JavaScript function which is
called by onUnload (<BODY
onUnload="unloaded()"><br>)"full login field and empty passw field" event and
forward to another page, if this is true.
