So far, 2 different ways have been mentioned: in the http headers and in
the head of the html page.

I want to urge you (and anyone) to use the http header functions whenever
possible and only see html metatages for expiry as a very last resort.

Because webcaches will *not* look at the content of a http object by
definition (and yes, all of the html page is content in the view of the
webcache). And webcaches (squid, netcache) will probably be deployed more
and more by ISP's since they can save a lot on the bandwidth bill.
