Forcing the browser not to load pages from its cache.

I have a static pageA.htm, pageC.htm and pageB.htm .  From pageA I link to pageC .  PageC contains a frameset: frame1 displays some static web page; frame2 displays pageB.htm
Suppose I am currently at looking at pageC in the browser, then I modify pageB in NotePad, than in the web browser I link back to pageA, and from there link to pageC.  PageB will not show the  modification I just made to it in NotePad.  If I click the Reload button in the browser however, pageC will update itself showing the modifications made to pageB inside frame2.  I guess this is because of the cache in the memory of the browser.
To solve the problem, I put:
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="January 1, 1970 00:00:00 GMT"> in the <head> of pageC and pageB.  However, this did not solve the problem of loading pageB with its lastest content unless I refresh using the Reload button. Help!

Try to put this in pagec:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!-- //cloak
function loadFrame() {
   now = new Date();
   top.FRAMEB.location = 'http://myserver.com/pageB.html? '+ now.getTime; /* add the time to the pagename - forces new load each time */
}
// uncloak --></SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<FRAMESET COLS="50%,*" onLoad="top.loadFrame()">
<FRAME NAME="FRAMEA" SRC="static.html">
<FRAME NAME="FRAMEB" SRC="javascript:' '">
</FRAMESET>
</HTML>
