I want my page to reload so the banner changes when a "back" navigation occurs. How do I prevent page caching?

Try either of these two tags.  Using them both should prevent the pages from caching, although, I'm not sure if preventing your page from caching automatically updates your baner.

<meta http-equiv="Expires"

<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">

Any questions, please add a comment.

My banner and other content are being generated by an SSI. So I assume if the page isn't cahed it will re-run the SSI(s). Will this solution allow a re-load when a "back" event is used.
Much Thanks
