Because Netscape connects to the server before checking if it should 
load it from cache first. Have you ever had a problem with a server 
for a minute or so and had Netscape respond: the server might be down 
blah blah blah...Loading previous version from cache.

What I think is happening is Netscape is checking either the file 
size or date stamp to decide if it needs to load a new version of 
the page. I don't know if there is a Netscape setup option to bypass 
this behavior or not. I can't check right now.
