Seb, I tend to agree that some webmasters would do better if they did less
and tried not to be so "helpful" to the user. But custom back buttons can
be very useful when used in presentations such as page by page instructions
and slideshows without having to hardcode the HTML which (if you forgive the
expletive) is a friggin' pain in the ass. :) Esspecialy when you have to
code dozens of pages. If the custom back button is implimented properly the
user shouldn't ever know the difference between it and a link.
