    I'm running an iPod Touch v2.2. I have a Windows machine running the Apache web server which serves an HTML page containing a form controlled by JavaScript. The form asks for a text entry. If I access this on a laptop using, for example, Firefox or Internet Explorer, text entry into the form is "well-behaved". But if I access it using Safari on the iTouch I get all sorts of weird "autocomplete" suggestions which I *never* want to accept. How do I turn this behaviour *off* ? I have looked in all the iTouch/Safari Settings but I can't find anything.

    Settings > Safari > AutoFill > OFF

    Does that do it?

    Errrm. There is no such setting. Settings>Safari gives me:
    JavaScript: On/Off
    Plug-Ins: On/Off
    Block Pop-ups: On/Off
    Accept Cookies: Never/From visited/Always
    Developer>Debug Console: On/Off

    And that's it.

    Perhaps you are running a different version of the iTouch/Safari?

    I think you have to update to 3.0.

    It's best for future games as well. Then you might get that autofill setting.

    I might get it or I will get it? Upgrading because I might get a new feature is not rational.
