I uploaded new pages, but they look the same, why?

I have uploaded some changes to my web site and when I go to my page in my browser I do not see the changes?


In some cases, you may need to refresh your browser window or clear your browsers cache.  If refreshing the browser window does not solve the problem, please clear the cache following the directions below.


Note: These instructions are for clearing the cache of Microsoft and Netscape browsers. You need to clear your cache when you can't see changes in files you have uploaded because your browser is caching them on your hard disk. To increase load time, your browser will cache pages you access rather then go back to the Internet to get them.
