The date and time after which the document should be considered expired. An illegal EXPIRES date, e.g. "0", is interpreted as "now". Setting EXPIRES to 0 may thus be used to force a modification check at each visit. Web robots may delete expired documents from a search engine, or schedule a revisit.

HTTP 1.1 (RFC 2068) specifies that all HTTP date/time stamps MUST be generated in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and in RFC 1123 format. RFC 1123 format = wkday "," SP date SP time SP "GMT"

wkday = (Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun) date = 2DIGIT SP month SP 4DIGIT ; day month year (e.g., 02 Jun 1982) time = 2DIGIT ":" 2DIGIT ":" 2DIGIT ; 00:00:00 - 23:59:59 month = (Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec)
