It sounds like a problem in your jsp or servlet. 

It looks like your response is not being truncated, since you get your </html>
tag. Make sure to flush the output stream before closing it in servlets. Also,
you might want to check whether you are using page.forward since this will
replace the response with the forwarded page response. Without seeing your
servlet or jsp, It's difficult to help further. 
What version of Tomcat are you running. You should be running either 3.2.3 if

We're getting off topic here. I have caching turned offf, however why would 
mozilla print <html><body></body></html> when the JSP page doesnt
that (well it does, but with a load of other stuff in there!). I can 
understand it caching pages, but not a page that has never been produced.

Tomcat must be doing something odd. Perhaps it is indeed returning just:

<html><body></body></html> when it's rebuilt a page recently?

I dunno, but it's a server problem not a caching problem IMHO.
