        Netscape may have their pages set up the same way that Microsoft
have theirs. You can not cache Microsoft's pages in the normal fashion.
I haven't done it, but I believe you have to set up some sort of exception
rule for these pages, so that they can be cached. Maybe Netscape have
decided to do the same things. But, I just tested it and my access.log
just came up with a "TCP_HIT" message when I accessed (Microsoft Network) always forces a refresh for some
reason.....oh well, such is life at Microsoft. :-)
