This is a strange error I am having.   Hopefully someone out there  
can help me figure out what is going on.

With all of my pages at www.tinsleywebdesign.com, it seems when I go  
to the w3c validator page after not having been in a while (like a  
matter of hours), the page it receives is a simple meta refresh page  
back to itself.  For example, when I go to check http:// 
www.tinsleywebdesign.com/contact.shtml, the first time it gives  
errors and the source is shown as:

1.  <HTML><HEAD><META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0.1; URL=/ 
contact.shtml">

2.  <META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no cache">

3.  <META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="-1">

4.  </HEAD></HTML>

Then if I click 'Revalidate', it refreshes and shows it correctly and  
validates.  It only gives the refresh page when I haven't been in a  
long time.  Is that something my server put in?  Why would it be  
there?  Could it have something to do with my using SSI to create the  
pages?

It's not so much a problem for validating my pages, but it is a  
problem for putting the icon on my page, because anyone who click the  
icon it will be their first time going, so it will give the error and  
the refresh page.  Any ideas on how I might remedy this would be much  
appreciated.
