Looking for alternative ways to control file caching

Web host can't get expires_mod to work on Apache

I'm trying to control the caching of site files. My understanding is that many browsers/ISPs ignore HTML meta tags that control file caching. And my web host can't seem to get the expires_mod working on the server.

If you're using server side scripting (such as PHP or ASP) one method is to append a unique number to every URL.

A bit ugly for normal pages, but handy to prevent image caching by anything in the chain between your server and the viewer (including their browser).
