Browser dont spontaneously generate If-Modified-Since - only if you
include a Last-Modified header in the original response (Im not
entirely sure whether or not they are allowed to)

Note that Brian was observing that IE was not sending any request to
the server - any request (even one that includes cache control
headers) is going to involve a performance hit.

Brian: could you repeat your test including the header
cache-control: must-revalidate
This certainly *should* have the desired effect of not letting IE
display stale data.

Ive covered the use of this header in some detail in a recent HowTo:
