Slightly off list post:
Does any body know how to programmatically stop IE cacheing a dynamically generated cgi (non-ASP) web page. We have tried the tag:

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="Thu, 01 Jan 1998 00:00:00 GMT">
</head>

and this has no affect, though it is fine in Netscape (comes up in their page info screen as the expiry date). Does anybody have any ideas or has already run into this?

Thanks
Ross Nelson
