AFAIK IIS4 does not parse HTML content, and thus any expiry information
must be added in the MMC "directory properties", or programmatically
using ASP or similar scripting tools..

Also I don't think IIS4 implements the new RFC2616 s-maxage
cache-control directive which is required to be able to tell anything
like this to the proxies.. and not many proxies have it implemented yet

HTTP/1.1 is a moving target not yet standardized. So far there has been
two official drafts published: RFC2068 (Jan 1997), replaced by RFC2616
(June 1999).
