      Subject: [ydn-javascript] browser BACK button to page with TABs: show the previously open TAB - how?

      Hi,

      Is there an easier way to implement intuitive browser BACK-button
      functionality than by manually setting cookies?

      I'd think that this is a global issue that should/could be handled
      within the YUI tabview code.

      ISSUE

      when a user navigates BACK to a page with tabs, whatever tab was open
      when he navigated away, it's always the default tab that is going to
      be open when one goes BACK. On a page like this:
        http://letexa.com/courses/5/course.php
      that can be a major annoyance.

      Now I could set a cookie - by the way, is there no cookie
      functionality (set/get) in the YUI??? - and read it, with 10 minutes
      or less lifetime.  Actually, I can't think of any other way to do this.

      Has anyone had this issue, solved it, or knows a better way?

      Thanks.
      Michael
