Clear form field history
Clear previoius entries that drop down under input box

 6:37 am on Dec 9, 2008 (gmt 0)

When entering data into an <input type="text"> in a form, most browsers remember previous entries so that when a new entry begins with the same character as a previous one, the previous ones appear and can be clicked on. I expect that we all appreciate this most of the time.

However, I need to know how to get rid of these drop down entries for a rapid data entry project in which they are VERY distracting.

In searching the web, the only things I find are ways of clearing default values when the box gets the focus, e.g.
<input type="text" onFocus="this.value=''" value="Email address here">
This does not get rid of those drop down historical entries.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks vm
