It would work, but I'd have to set up meta tags for LocalFS objects..



I've found a better kludge: when I call the index page, I pass a "refresh" variable 
along
the URL which contains the number of the modified image.

Within the index method, I then call:


       <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('id2',id+'_0.jpg')">
       <dtml-let img="store[id][id2]">

       <A HREF="imageForm?fnum=&dtml.url_quote-id;"><IMG
           SRC="<dtml-var 
"img.absolute_url()+['','?%s'%_.random.random()][REQUEST.get('refresh')==id]">"
           
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
           WIDTH="<dtml-var "img.width">"
           HEIGHT="<dtml-var "img.height">"
           ALT="&dtml-id;"></A>

       </dtml-let>


This way, the refreshed image is called with a trailing "?0.283759872" that tricks 
Netscape
to think it's a new object, and reloads.


This could work for you too, maybe.
