[Referer] ... [/Referer] returns a pair of HTML anchor tags with a link to the previous page which the current visitor was viewing in their Web browse. The referrer is sent along with each HTTP request and may differ depending on what browser the visitor is using.

Note: "Referer" is a mispelling of the word "Referrer" which was used as part of the original HTTP specification. Both names are supported interchangeably, but "Referrer" is the proper spelling.

The [Referer_URL] tag can be used to return the same URL that is used in the anchor tags returned by this tag.
