Keep in mind that this is VB Script and will only work in browsers that
support the language (meaning to say, not all browsers...).

Also, I don't think that this will work since when you hit the back button
from the perspective of the script you aren't "coming from" page 3, rather
just going back to a location in your history.  I would like to hear from
you if you find this statement to be false, though.
