	Although, I am not certain if simply clicking the "Back" button
while remaining at your site will cause this to return true. If the value is
false, and if you're using sessions (considered by many to be evil, of
course), you'll probably want to invoke Session.Abandon in addition to
short-circuiting your server-side processing.
	One of our ASP experts can likely offer additional first-hand tips
and wisdom.
