I am so baffled on this one, I am not even sure where to begin. I am a web designer and recently my hosting company upgraded or switched to some new servers. SOMETIMES, when I make a change to a file, the changes are not reflected in IE at all. What I have been doing is going so far as renaming the files, browsing to the old file name to get a page can't be displyed, then renaming the file back to the original and browsing back to it to see the change. For example, if you look at this page, http://tmh.netdbs.com/apsg - In IE, the left column is maroon even though I changed its background color to transparent. When I make a change and pull the page up in Firefox (I love Firefox), the change is there. I tried clearing the cache of IE but no dice. Can anyone help me?

The left column is maroon for me. Sure sounds like a cache problem. Have you tried holding down the CRTL key and clicking refresh? That will force a refresh of the page from the server.

The issue is not a matter of my cache, I have done everything over and over and over to clear my cache completely. The server is some caching the pages and I don't have the ability to clear its cache, that is if it has one. I know very little about this topic but it frustrates me to no end. Thanks
