So you're saying in Safari, using back navigation doesn't persist the
form-field entries?  You have no control over that doing it this way,
in any browser, I'm sure other browsers can exhibit this behaviour
depending on cache settings.

The method where you have control is to not use JavaScript back(),
take the user to the form using standard navigation with the
previously-entered values explicitly defined in the form.

While you're at it.  Put your error message on the form itself so you
don't have to hold onto any state.
