If you have access to the server, you can set the webserver to include
directives for caching in HTTP requests.  For web pages, you can include a
meta tag in the <head>...</head> of the web page:
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />

I don't believe this will work for images linked from the page, however;
that needs to be something the webserver does, not the web page.
