Unfortunatly MS didn't implement shift-Reload to send a Pragma-No-cache
which forces the cache to fetch from the source/parent host.

The only method I have found is under cache settings to select 'always
check' which will send a Progma-No-Cache with every request. It isn't what
we want, but it is good for those difficult to clear documents.

I find myself in the crazy position of running with MS IE in one window and
lynx in a secondary window and whenever I need to refresh a page I cut and
paste the URL into lynx and hit ^R :-(
