Hi sasi..
U can use it in the body tag as shown below..

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javaScript">
function disableBackButton()
{
window.history.forward();
}
setTimeout("disableBackButton()", 0);
</script>
</head>
<body onload="disableBackButton()">
<input type="button" name="b1" value="b1"/>
<a href="z.html">Clcik me</a>
</body>
</html>

If you are using Firefox browser then you use <body onunload> function instead of onload function. check whether it is working or not and inform me.

Thanks and regards,
