I don't believe you can do this, as it's a feature of the browsers, not part of any HTML standard.

You can do it, but not with CSS. Simply add autocomplete to the form element (did you even bother to Google for this??)

<..... autocomplete="off">


Note that there are plugins available that undo the off feature, allowing a user to reenable the setting, so don't rely on it being off.
