Subject: [_] Clearing forms in HTML

Hi all,

Does anyone know under what circumstances IE clears a form when returned to
it using either the Back button or 'history.go(-1)'?

I've got a search form, and I want the form to _NOT_ be cleared when hitting
either the browser's Back button or my own 'Return to previous page' button
when there are no search results.

In Safari it seems okay, but bosses are screaming at me that the form clears
itself in IE.
