How can I create an 'UNDO' last entry button for a text field?

There are 2 possibilities :
1. If your text field is the only one element form.
<form name='frm'>
<input type='text' value='my first value'>
<input type='button' value='reset' onClick='javascript:this.form.reset
2. If you have many text field and only one text field is affected by 
the button, you should do some tricks.
<script language="javascript">
	var myTextValue = '';
	function reset_text_value(){
		document.frm.foo.value = myTextValue;		
	function save_text_value(){
		myTextValue = document.frm.foo.value;
<body onload="javascript:save_text_value()">
<form name="frm">
<input type="text" name="foo" value="my text value">
<input type="button" value="reset" onclick="javascript:reset_text_value
Hope these help!
