Preventing autoFill in web forms

P: 2
I have written a membership database application (PHP + mySQL) and need to prevent autofill from filling in fields in a member record edit form.

I know I can turn off autoFill in my browsers, I want a away to prevent it within the form itself. Is there any standard way to "tell" a browser not to autofill the fields on a particular form?
