Is this due to the preferences setting for how often to check pages? I 
used to think this was a limitation of CSS rollovers, but I had IE 
checking for updated web content on every visit to the page.

If you look at Tools > Internet options > (Temporary Internet Files - 
Settings), is "Check for newer versions of stored pages" set to "Every 
visit to the page" or "Automatically"?

The default is automatically, and I think many people doing web design 
change it to every visit, and see this apparent problem.
