Okay. You've lost me now. I'm not that familiar with the code to understand
this, this question might be totally naive, but here goes:
Couldn't the refresh setting on the Edit page be set to zero so that the
cached copy is ignored and page is always reloaded when the user presses
"Back"? Then going back to an Edit page would be equivalent to pressing
"Edit" again, wouldn't it?
