I am using a flash calendar which is driven by an xml file.

I have written a PHP file that rewrites the XML via an interface. My problem is that in order to see the changes in the flash swf, the user needs to close the browser and open another instance for the changes to be visible. The browser seems to be caching the orignial information.

I have added a META NO CACHE tag on all the pages, but this has no effect.

For info you can see the site calendar at

Any suggestions
