  Thank you, Dr. Herbert Sulzer. Thats exactly what I'm looking for.
  Your understanding was perfect, I mean, you guessed I had a CGI answer.

  However, it didn't work.
  I was supposed to put the meta tag at my frameset, isnt it ?
  Below the first lines of it (frameset) :

  <html>
  <META NAME="HTMLID" CONTENT="HR102F">
  <head>
  <META HTTP-EQUIV="PRAGMA" CONTENT="NOCACHE">
  <TITLE>HOR&Aacute;RIO ON-LINE - ATRIBUI&Ccedil;AO DE AULAS (HR102F)</TITLE>
  <script language="JAVASCRIPT">
  ...

  Have I done something wrong ?

  As I'm always intrigued(?) about Meta tags, I mean, I'm very curious about
their secret powers, I also looked for "NOCACHE" documentation at HTML40
specification (from W3C) but didn't find it there...

  By the way, my browser is Netscape 4.0.

  Once more, thank you !
