Is there a way to get a web page to load from the server everytime instead of looking at the cache and loading an old copy?

Either you mean

   "for myself, by setting my browser preferences"

in which case the answer is "yeah, it's easy" or you mean

   "for the users who visit my page" in which case it's "not really, it's difficult"...

If it's for yourself, let me know which browser and I can tell you, but if it's for your site or page, the only solution is to use the following meta tag:

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

in the <head> section of the page. Some browsers support it, some don't, and I don't have a list handy. Web publishing is an inexact science...

Oh yeah, just did a bit more reasearch for you. The above should work in Netscape, and the following should do the same for IE:

<META http-equiv="expires" content="any date in the past">
