Simple question (I've never used JavaScript before) - is there a function in JavaScript to pause a set number of seconds (rather than using a loop to delay) ? And if so what is it ?

You can do this with HTML
not JavaScript, but HTML:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="expires" CONTENT="01 Jan 1970 00:00:01 GMT">

Rich ?

What's that got to do with Delay ? That looks like something to do with cacheing.
