JSI Tip 2858. Web pages that should update frequently, don't?

When you view a web page that should update frequently, like news or stock sites, the pages don't auto-refresh?

This is generally caused by having a date/time that is not current.

To correct the problem, set the date/time correctly.

Some site operators send their pages a pre-expired, so you don't see this problem on all sites.
