First of all, Expire header and If-Modified-Since header are there to serve 2 
different purposes....

There was an email in this forum that I think should address your concern, IF 
you actually follow the link and read the articles.

I dug this email up from my deleted section, and attached it here(without 
asking the permission from Lokitech).

By the way, it would be nice to keep those email discussions organized online.

Jean-Fran├žois,

This is the best write-up I've seen on how browsers and proxy servers
cache:

http://www.mnot.net/cache_docs/

Then once you know what you want in headers, this page is a good
discussion of the various browser and server-side caching features in
Resin 3.1:

http://www.caucho.com/resin-3.1/doc/proxy-cache.xtp

What you want is certainly very doable and hopefully straight-forward
after reading these docs.  The first site also links to an online tool
that can test whether you've got the headers working right.
