how _does_ one clear the cache on IE

Apologies if I'm way too late on this one, but I figured this post needed to move up the chain a little.

In IE (I'm on 5.5 but should be the same/similar for most) go to Tools\Internet Options. On the first tab "General" about half way down the dialogue box is a section called Temporary Internet Files. You can delete files there. It's clunky though - a kind of "all or nothing" approach. You can't really select which files to delete, although you do have an option to leave "offline" files alone.

HTH (albeit way too late)
