Is there anyway to prevent form auto completion?

Is there anyway to prevent form auto completion. A few of my clients want to prevent toolbars such as Google Toolbar (which many, many people use) and other programs from automatically answering. It also has an affect on the way the form looks.

I am not using common names for my contact forms. Normally the "name" field is "contactformContactName".

Any ideas? Thank you.

No sir. I've designed the web site for the client and they don't want auto complete to work for the end user. I will read that article and report back.

Thank you.

Autocomplete is optional on google, yahoo and MS. Just turn it off. Preventing the user from turing it back on is harder.

My standard recommendation is fire the first 2 people caught altering the IT equipment against company policy and the problme will go away.

Thanks Brad for pointing that out. It saves me from having to be mean.

Lee, we don't have control over the end user.

Thanks X for the links. I will look them over and report back.
