There is no need for that; if the browser/proxy is actually checking
with your server, you can just use "touch" on the file/directory to
update the timestamp. This will affect the Last-Modified header, and
cause any If-Modified-Since test to succeed (i.e. the "new" data will
be returned rather than just a 304 "Not Modified" response).

However, the same issue will affect all pages. Nothing in the headers
(or http-equiv tags) for one page will affect the expiry status of
other pages which have been cached. The only solution there is to
rename all of the links (e.g. change .html -> .htm, change the case of
the first letter, etc) so that the content appears to be new.
