I would like to have an anchor with an image attached that will when clicked return the user to the previous page in the browser's history (i.e. I want to simulate the BACK button) I have managed to use a form button like so:

<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Previous Page"  
       onclick="history.back()">

However, I would like something link <A HREF="Don't know what goes here" onClick=history.back()> .... I know that it is the HREF="something" value that I would like to be replaced with the history.back value.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

You would use
<a href="javascript:history.back();">Go back</a>
