Try the HTTP RFC. (Pragma: no-cache is the backwards compatible way of 
doing it, Cache-Control: no-cache, must-revalidate at HTTP 1.1, and 
also Expires: [some time in the past].

Read your server manual and configure it to send these headers; if you 
use Apache, you probably won't need write access 
to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf [or wherever], but can just put the file 
in a user directory.

(This hasn't got anything to do with CSS, apart from the fact that some 
browsers are overly fond of caching CSS pages.)
