How to turn off the AutoComplete using meta tags

I was wondering if there is some other way to turn autocomplete off
besides using "autocomplete=off", using a meta tag or something
similar. It would be great if there is some way to turn it off at a
page level.

Any ideas/thought would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Zac

We are developing an intranet application, our front-end uses IE5, but the client doesn't like IE5's AutoComplete ability for remembering
password, they want to turn it off. Other than going to the browser's option, is there any other way to turn it off?

Don't know about meta tags. This relies on javascript being avavilable,
just put it in a script tag after the last element that matters:
var a = document.getElementsByTagName('*'), i = a.length;
while( i-- ) { a[i].autoComplete='off'; }

You can disable it for the complete form:
<form autocomplete="off" ...>
