That's not a legal value for content. If you want the page to 
not be cached, you should use a valid, properly-formatted 
date/time which has already passed.

> <meta http-equiv= "pragma" content="no-cache">

That's not a legal use of pragma. Pragma is for headers sent
*to* the server *by* the client, not from the server to the client.
