Subject: Reloading a graphic and not a page..

I have an odd problem. I need to refresh a graphic each time a visitor go=
es to a page. I would like the browser to cache everything=20
except one of the graphics. Sounds simple, just use a script. The problem=
 is that my hands have been tied.  I can=92t use a CGI script.=20
Is there an HTML tag I could put into the following line to force the bro=
wser to refresh the graphic? Also, I was thinking about an=20
SSI, but I=92ve tried and it doesn=92t seem to work.

The HTML line I would like to be refreshed each time is:

<IMG SRC=3D=93graph.gif=94 ALT=3D=93Current Status=94 ISMAP WIDTH=3D400 H=

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
