I've got a collection of JSP pages with dynamic content. My problem is the browser (Internet Explorer) hangs unless I set the Internet Options to check for newer versions of stored pages on every visit to the page. I have set the http header options to indicate the page is expired when sent by setting: response.addHeader("Expires", "Thu.01.Dec.1994.16:00:00.gmt"). When I look at the contents of the temporary internet files I see that the pages expired an hour prior to the time they were downloaded, which should be okay. Any ideas?
I use the following tag: <meta http-equiv="expires" content=" "> With this tag, IE works fine with the "check for newer versions" flag set to automatically. And while I have no great love for MS, IE's implementation of the Document Object Model make it much more powerful for building applications than Mozilla. The ability in particular to trap and modify keystrokes is crucial to my users. Joe
