I am looking for a java script snippet that can capture the use of the back button on IE, post a message to the user, and not allow the back action to take place

You can use the onbeforeunload event but may have it's limitations:

This works for any movement off the page.  We need something that will work if the back or fwd buttons are used only.

I am not aware of any events that only trap those conditions. If such an option was available - although I can think of many good uses for it - I can also imgaine some very irritating uses as well. Even though I cannot offer any more suggestions - I will be monitoring this post to see if a solution exists. Good luck.
