Try this:

<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
document.write("<p>Current url: " + window.location.href + "</p>");
document.write("<p>Previous url: " + document.referrer + "</p>");
</script>
</body>
</html>

Note that you won't always get document.referrer - depends on how the page was called.

:o)

<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; URL=javascript:history.go(-2);">
