Dear Sir/Madam,
    Our web presence allows users to enter search terms and
then browse the results of this query of our database.
All pages come up in the same screen of the web browser.
The user may examine say 'n' pages of results before deciding
to refine the search. Currently to do this they would have to hit the
'back' button 'n' times to get back to the search page that held their
initial query. What I need is a button on our browse screen that
just automaticly inscructs the browser to display the 'n'th page
back from the current page. Is this possible?
Yours Allan.
