META tag - expires
From Sarah Dain at Virtual Environments International on 13 Jan '99
I've put META HTTP-EQUIV="expires" tags with an old date in the top
of some pages which contain information which is regularly updated,
so that browsers look for the new version of the page.

Will this make search engines ignore these pages, thinking that they
are out of date?

(If so, does anyone know if there is a better way to ensure a browser
will look for the latest version of the page and not open the cached
version?)

I hope I'm not duplicating an old question (I did have a quick search of
the board.)

Cheers,
Sarah
