Just wanted to follow up with my thanks for your excellent help in providing understanding of how to generate the 401 error page and getting me thru the process of performing a sign-out from basic auth. Without your patience it never would have happened.

Also wanted to tell you that I've scrapped it all. Keeping the code for a rainy day of course, but giving up on using it (as well as the basic auth signon process) to use my own 'roll-your-own' code. Since IE insisted on presenting multiple credentials during the signon process it was a futile effort to be doing a signoff. And yes - I've taken the proper precautions to hash the incoming password value before submission and storing in my db that way.

Thanks again. It's help like this that makes this group such a great resource.
