Good to know.  My application can of course handle a cached page coming in
out of order (at an unexpected point) but the user may have entered a lot
of data (that can't be safely used at that point) and not be happy at
losing the effort.  Preventing the web browser from caching the page would
protect the user from this problem.

Thanks again, Lou
