[tpm] Maybe OT: Clearing CGI values in web-based apps

I've been stumped as to how to clear the CGI values passed in
For example, when a user logs in, I show a short "you've logged in
successfully" page that redirects to the main page. I had expected that
to do it because the redirect calls the URL directly, but if I reload
the page, it resubmits the login information. Similar after submitting
orders and such.
This is the kind of thing I want to prevent.
I know it's possible as a lot of pages these days somehow prevent
this from happening. Is this a perl-based solution or do I /shudder/
have to use JS? If it's JS, can I bother the list for some help or
pointers, even if it's somewhat off-topic?
