I looked at the W3 pages that described such things and their use,
and there are an awful lot of headers to play with ;-)  Do all
browsers implement all of them?  I'm sure one or other of them could
get the 'renew' effect you want, if and only if the browser pays
attention to it!!

You and me,'Bro, you and me!  That W3 stuff and all those headers is
heady stuff :-)
