In the jQuery ToDo code example

The error is from the http://examples.oreilly.com/0636920025252/ jQuery ToDo example code. In the file "form.html", the save button has the data-rel="back" attribute. This attribute return you to the previous page. So you go back to the tasks list afer pressing the save button. In the file "app.js", at line 125 there's a call to the $.mobile.changePage jQuery mobile API to change the page. So when you press save this code execute and move you to the tasks List AND the data-rel="back" is processed by jQuery Mobile and this time return you to the form. The there's a double back problem here. The solution: remove the $.mobile.changePage API call OR remove the data-rel="back" attribute. Martin
