Defeating the browser's cache

I have a script that opens a web page in my browser, using webBrowser.openUrl, but how can I force it to refresh the page from the server?
You can't! There's no wire that connects up to the Refresh/Reload button.
But if you put this in thesection of the page, it will refresh every time you go there:
It works. It solved a big problem I had with editing the home page in the web browser. When a script opens the editing page sometimes it would show me an old version of the page. When I click on Post Message, items are deleted! Ooooops.
Thanks to Tommy Sundstrom for posting this howto on the Script Meridian community list. It's a life-saver.
