The policy regarding remembering or not remembering values should probably
depend on:

1) The browser

2) The security level

3) The protocol, e.g. https, feeds, etc.

Since no values are contained in the source, the server should not directly
be involved, i.e. it should not send values back to the user (unless you
program it to do so).

Try a range of different browsers and see how they behave.

Having said all of that, I believe there might be an option (in the page
source) for 'remember', just as there is onefor 'hidden'. Let's see what
the others say...
