I should have appended this

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="300" >
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache" >
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="Tue Aug 10 10:15:10 BST 1999">

Basically it says 	'Update this page every 5 minutes'
			'Do not cache this page cos that would be daft'
			'Assuming you keep a decent NTP clock, this page
			 will self destruct at...'

The only fun to be had is the dynamic rebuilding of the 'Expires' line

If you use shell, you can get it by using something like

	FUTURE=`$GNUDATE --date="+5 minutes"`
