I have a problem when opening a modal dialog in Explorer 4. The source URL is an ASP-page which should always be updated when a user opens it. I would like to disable the cache for this page. Is there any way to do this, or by refreshing the page automatically when loading?

put

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="0">

in the head of the page.

An alternative is

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

A quick and correct answer. Perfect, thank you.

One note though, it seems that it takes about 10 sec before the cache is lost?? It don't bother me however.
