  could try the expires content tag, but i'm not sure if all servers 
support this, and i'm not absolutly sure if this is correcet html (it 
could be netscapian).  But I use it on some of my pages and use our 
locally wriiten perl server and it works ok.  Oh you may have trouble 
with proxy server caches too.

hope this is some help
