add onLoad and onUnload javascript to the webpage...

That will fire javascript when the page is loaded, and when they leave the page...

You can't stop them leving though, so what you want to do isn't possible :-(

Can I issue a yes/no dialog that the user can regret before the browser leaves the webpage?

There is

onBeforeUnload

but it is only available in Internet Explorer

http://www.webreference.com/dhtml/diner/beforeunload/index.html

----------------

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.2" TYPE="text/javascript">
<!--
function unloadMess(){
    mess = Leaving so soon?"
    return mess;
}

function setBunload(on){
    window.onbeforeunload = (on) ? unloadMess : null;
}

setBunload(true);
//-->
</SCRIPT>

I'm quite weak with JavaScript.  I'd appreciate if you add a sample code that includes the yes/no dialog and the canceling of moving to another webpage,
