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.
