Are you _sure_ that that document came from the cache, and not from the
web-server? Check your access log. It's probable that it _did_ come from
the server and not from squid's cache.

Also, as an aside, squid can't see META HTTP-EQUIV tags, unless the
web-server checks the document for them, and turns them into the
appropriate HTTP headers _before_ handing the document to squid.
