That's what the Expires header is good for, isn't it? See
<http://www.nads.de/NADS/Ueberblick/heute> for an example. This URL
gives you an overview of events in Düsseldorf and about for the
very day. It expires at the end of the day (local time in Germany).

(In fact, it is just a 302 Redirect message pointing to the real
document. To make the CERN httpd cache redirections, see my patch
under
<http://www.nads.de/NADS/Public/WWWTechnik/WWWDaemon-patch.01.gz>.)

Best regards
