don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but when i look at 'View Page Info' on the rightclick menu, it seems to show the wrong page expiry time. it is one hour out.
obviously that has something to do with British Summer Time when i am viewing a UK-hosted site.
but i don't think it has got anything to do with the actual site. because when i view the headers for the page (using the web developer extension), it shows the correct time -- less one hour.
so the browser must be receiving the correct expiry time from the header, but displaying it incorrectly in 'View Page Info'.

it's not much of a problem, granted - just a minor annoyance. but does anybody know a fix for it?

Yes, the expires headers (if sent) are controlled by the site/server but there are client controls/behavior as well. RFC2616 [rfc-editor.org] sections 13 and 14 are where you will find the details. Here are some W3 links showing just those two sections ...
