I don't understand but for some reason my reply is not gone .... is it still
pending? Essentially two things, is there a work around for IE in order to
avoid the bug regarding the "must-revalidate" in the header?

I am not sure I quite understand with the fact that for IE it is a nuisance
just for the development and not for the deployment. Johan, what do you
actually mean with loading under a different name in ka-map? Do you mean a
different alias? If you refer to the alias this can be good for the
development not certain for the deplyment.
