<META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="0">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Cache-Control" CONTENT="no-cache">

Hard to answer without more detail, but I think you are trying to prevent the page from being cached?
Unfortunately, it is my understanding that this is rarely an easy thing to do. Speaking second hand, here is what I've heard: pretty much no matter what you do, MSIE will always cache. The only time "no-cache" really works is through Secure Sockets Layer (although I don't see how this could affect what happens on the client machine...) Finally, I was under the impression that either <META...> or <META EQUIV...> were being deprecated.
Whatever the deal, I've read a lot of these but have messed with much myself.
