hi,

just a very very simple request. Those of you who do your own stuff already know this, but
this is for the benefit of all those others...

could you please add the following FORM tag to the example given in the "Captive Portal"
Login HTML code

autocomplete="off"

put this both into the <FORM ... > field and the username/password <input ... > field 
(you can never be too cautious!)

This will stop IE/Mozilla/Firefox etc from bringing up that ever-so-helpful and ever-so-dangerous(!)
'remember this password' dialog box. 

totally ideal for those systems where multiple users are loggin into network from same box..
and general security anyway!
