Hi Richard

If you are using the standard document display (format DocumentContents
true - true is the default so it will be true if you dont specify this
format option) eg it has an open book icon and the title at the top of
the table of contentst, then clicking the book icon will take you back
to where you were in search/browsing.

This appears to only work for hierarchical documents, which I guess
makes sense, cos if there is only one page for the document, then you
can just use the browsers back button.

I can't work out how/where this link is generated, so I am not sure how
to get it if you aren't using DocumentContents.

Hope this helps
