In my (quite deep) experience, with 99% probability it is not a problem

versions in its cache.
These things can really be a pain.

(And I'm just saying this so that you would not go and spend maybe a lot 
of time investigating an issue in the wrong place).

First try the obvious : press the SHIFT button on your keyboard, and at 
the same time click the reload icon.

If that doesn't help, clear your browser cache again, close your 
browser, open it again, clear the cache again, and reload the page, if 
needed by the method above again.

If that doesn't help, get Firefox if you do not have it yet, and add to 
it the LiveHttpHeaders add-on/plugin.  It adds an item in Tools, call it 
up, and without closing that window, go back to the main window and call 
the page again.  Then go back to the LiveHttpHeaders window, and follow 
the exchange between the browser and the server.
If you are seeing answers from the server with code 30x (not_modified 
etc..), then you still have an issue with the browser cache.
