    It should have been cached unless it was a dynamic generated site.

    So the better question is "how do I know if it *hasn't* been cached - usually a good rule-of-thumb is if it has a ? in the URL it won't be cached.

    Why do you need to know this? If we know the reason we may be able to offer better answers ;-P

    A teacher thinks the cachepilot isn't caching pages. I would like a nice simple way to prove it is (other than it loads faster)

    Couldn't you simply say, because all traffic is routed through a proxy, it's automatically cached?

    Maybe a little cheeky, but in most cases it's true!

    You could probably use wget:

    (see bottom of the page for proxy settings).

    Tough one.
    It may be worth checking the HTTP headers, but AFAIK IE won't let you - only firefox.
