How to Turn off Autocomplete in html textbox

Every once in a while you have a form where you dont want Google's Autocomplete to try to guess at the text. For example, my wife runs a shipping business. I had a textfield for the tracking number. Each time she tried to enter it, it gave a long dropdown of the other tracking numbers.... But this is only an annoyance and not helpful.

Others may have credit card textfields... and need the same feature for shared computers - for obvious reasons. If someone else uses the computer, you dont want them to see the auto-complete of your credit card transaction.

This simple fix was courtesy of the following site:

Most sites just suggested turning off the google toolbar or explained that there was no fix.... But all things come to those who are persistant in finding the truth.
