I am posting a form and onpening a new web page which has

"Pragma: No-Cache Expires: 0 Cache-Control: No-Cache"

at the top of the page. The functionallity is fine but for obvious reasons, I want to get rid of that message. Any ideas, I've tried putting

"<META HTTP-EQUIV="Cache-Control" CONTENT="no cache">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no cache">

tags at the top of both the submitting page and the returning page.

Any thoughts would be appreciated

Hi ScottyBoy, and welcome to the WebmasterWorld forums.

I'm not sure I completely understand your situation, but I do have a rather complete reference about cache control to offer:

Caching Tutorial [mnot.net]

Hope it helps, and let us know if you have more questions.

Thanks for that great Link tedster. Cache control meta tags only work on IE 4 and not IE4, NN, Opera, or any other browser of note.
