how do you disable caching on a simgle block on a page and have the rest of the page cache?

You can't without overriding the block controller and changing the cache setting flags.

Its one of the reasons why I started this thread:

In the mean time, I have an addon in the PRB (free) for cache-free clones of the content and html blocks. Anyone who wants a pre-release copy, PM me and I will send a zip.

do you also have a solution for browser cache. i showed a client the site, went and made adjustments, then came back and the new page didn't show up in the auto nav. i cleared browser cache at their location and the auto nav appeared. so i wonder how many others are not seeing the update?

In chrome you can install a browser extension 'Pendule' to click a menu to forcibly refresh a page's css.

.htaccess is the way, like you tried I guess? Your client probably has a copy of the page from before the .htaccess was placed.
