I searched all of the your FAQ and came out with no answer that I am
looking for.

I updated a webpage and validate it.  But, the validator keeps a memory of
an old webpage content (by looking at "Last Modified" line on the
validator).  I hit "Revalidate" button, hoping that the validator updates
its new Last Modified date.  No luck.

There is one way I had to get around with as a small trick.  I just simply
rename the webpage file name (i.e. test.html to test1.html) to have it
validate.  Once it passed the validation, I rename the file again back to
the original name (i.e. test1.html to test.html).  Then, I tried to
validate it, still no luck - the validator keeps the old webpage memory.

Is there a way to tell the validator to purge their own memory cache about
my old webpage and refresh it as new to the latest Last Modified date?
