See Section 14.9
To prevent caching, for example, HTTP headers or HTML headers should contain
,----[ Code ]
| Pragma: no-cache
| Cache-Control: no-cache
Also see: http://www.i18nguy.com/markup/metatags.html
Apache specifics at: comp.infosystems.www.servers.unix
To debug, use Firefox with the Live Headers extension.
Hope it helps,
