IE 5.5 Page Reload Issues

When I hit back (or JavaScript history.back())
to go back to my JSP page, it does not reload.
I've tried the classic
response.setHeader("Pragma", "No-cache");
response.setHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache");
but this does NOT work on IE 5.5.
Any ideas?

While I don't know the answer readily, I know that such topics have come up in the forum before. Instead of waiting for someone (more knowledgeable than me.. ), if I could suggest, I would recommend the search tool. Search keywords like for "reload" or "no cache" in the JSP or the Servlets forum.
Also you can't post a link to the search results, so I can't perform the search for you, I would if I could.
Good Luck and Welcome to Javaranch.

Just try this in your html that is output. It will prevent caching by the browser.
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">

or this to refresh you page automatically.
