Return me - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

:confused; I need the html for Dreamweaver 8 that will return a person back to a previous page. They could be coming from any number of previous pages and I need to return them to the actual one they just came from. Is this possible? Thanks...

    Not with HTML alone. There are (at least) three ways:

    1) JavaScript.
    => Unreliable.

    2) A server-side script which uses the HTTP referrer.
    => Even more unreliable.

    3) A server-side script which keeps track of the previously visited page
    in a session and prints out a link to that page when necessary.
    => Still requires server-side scripting.

    Ah Ha! I wondered what breadcrumbs was all about. It is available in one of the
    Dreamweaver readymade templates and I can just copy the html from there and
    drop it into my site code. Thanks for the lead.
