cache problem with IE 4.0-5.0 again

I sent this message the other day and no one replied. Is there anyone out 
there? Has anyone else had this problem with IE?

I'm having a problem with a resource that I've implemented by extending 
PostableFrame hosted by Jigsaw 2.0.5. It generates HTML through an 
HtmlGenerator with a header that includes the

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="Sun, 28 Dec 1997 00:00:00 GMT">
   <TITLE>Edit Name</TITLE>

  so that browsers will not cache the result and display stale data.

This works fine with Netscape and other browsers, but Internet Explorer 
doesn't support this tag. However, this seemed to work with older versions 
of Jigsaw I used to use.

Does anyone know how to force IE not it cache an HTML page?
