Can you point me to a tutorial on creating a simple button that will take the user back to the previous page?

Why do you need that? Every browser has that already—and people know how to use it.

I want to incorporate one in the navigation.
Possible? how hard is it?

It is really easy. Here's all the code you need:
that will put back buttons in about half a dozen or more places in every browser so that the person using the browser will find it where they prefer it to be.

felgall! Your invisible code is a bit above my skill level
not yet ready to code in invisibles.

Hehe, that's what the browser back button is for. It's about the most user friendly / accessible thing on the web. If you start to add back buttons with JS, it messes up the native back button, and users get confused and miserable. So I really recommend you forget about this one.
