Relying on the back button isn't good... the data may or may not be there
when they return.

However, you CAN provide them with a button "change", and POST the data to a
form... where they modify their data, the form needs to echo the POST data
back into the form, eg:

<FORM action="validate.php" action="POST">
    <INPUT type="text" name="username" value="<?=$_POST['username']?>">

selects, checkboxes and some other things are a little more tricky, but
you'll figure them out... search the archives too... it's been asked 1000's
of times :)
