On my desktop, I have a web page (active desktop) with current stock prices which is basically a basic web page with a gif file which is updated online every 15 seconds. When I go to it in my web browser, it will actually refresh. When view it on my desktop it does not refresh. Kind of defeats the purpose for me.

I wrote a small html code for it to automatically refresh after a few seconds as well as to not cache the page but it still presents the original photo.

Any ideas on how to have the Active Desktop automatically refresh?

Please note: F5 does not work. Right clicking a blank spot of the web page on the active desktop and clicking refresh is the only way I can get it to actually refresh.
