You may not be aware that your browser (Internet Explorer is probably what you use) stores web pages on your own computer to make browsing the internet faster. This means that if a web page has been updated you may not be seeing the latest version. You need to clear out the storage in the computer's "cache" and then you will pick up the latest versions.
