Web authors can effectively disable IE's AutoComplete feature by using the
following HTML <META> tags:
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="Mon, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT">
<meta http-equiv="Last-Modified" content="Sat, 10 Nov 2012 09:08:07 GMT">
<meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-store, no-cache,
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">
Using these tags, web authors can bypass the IE-specific AUTOCOMPLETE="off"
HTML attribute for <FORM> and <INPUT> elements.
Thought you'd be interested.
Re: HOWTO: Disable IE's AutoComplete feature using HTML META tags
At the expense of a fair bit of collateral damage to its and everyone
else's caching capabilities, yes.
Why is using an IE specific attribute to bypass an IE-specific
'problem'  wrong? It's incredibly unlikely to harm anything else,
 Why would you (as an author, I mean, as a user I disable it in my
browser) want to turn off autocomplete - if the user wants it they can
have it. I doubt either the autocomplete attribute or your caching
hack works in other browsers with autocomplete ability anyway.
