    Just set up some HTTP headers to keep the page from caching itself.

    Code:
    <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, must-revalidate">
    <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">

    I reject your reality and substitute it with my own!

    There's no rule that says that browsers have to pay attention to your 'no-cache' instructions so you might want to add the following:

    <meta http-equiv="Date" content="-1">
    <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1">


    Note: HTTP headers do not support relative dates, but any illegal date is taken to have occured sometime in the past.
