ok here is the situation...

client is having a database website
problem is, when someone views the database page, the entire data gets downloaded on a web cache server(do they exist o_o ) ?
he wants to disable this caching for his website
means the data should be available for online viewing only, it should not be copied anywhere else
is this possible? if yes then how?

i searched on google and found something which claimed that adding the following META tag can do this
<META HTTP-EQUIV ="Expire" CONTENT ="0">

true or not?

One of the best reference out there:
http://www.mnot.net/cache_docs/

The best way is to force it on the Web server side. IIS allows expiration headers out of the box and also any custom http headers.
Other web servers will too in some ways.

The next best thing is through the Web language used: .NET, classic ASP and others will allow global changes to headers and such.
