You might try including something like this in the head section of the page's html:

<meta http-equiv="expires" content="Wed, 26 Feb 1997 08:21:57 GMT">
<meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache">

It shouldn't make any difference if you've set the equivalent headers but 'should' and 'ie'
don't really go together that well

Do you know of any way to avoid the "Do you want to resubmit the form information" dialog
in IE when you do this?
