Back button - some browsers will keep it in your cache. Sounds like you
are editing DTML, this doesnt happen in ZPT or Python and I really thing
DTML should be treated the same, however...

There are other ways to edit: External Editor, WebDAV, FTP or maybe even
something like FileSystem Directory View. Check out External Editor for
a start :)
