You can automatically forward readers from one page to another using the REFRESH method of the <META> tag. This trick can be used for redirecting readers from an old web page to a new one, or for moving people on from a splash page after a given time period.
<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="16; url=http://www.jalfrezi.com/">
As you can see from the example, the META tag goes in the HEAD of the document. The example would move the reader to http://www.jalfrezi.com/ after 16 seconds.
The above example performs the same forwarding action as the META example, except this time it waits until the page is completely loaded before starting the 16 second (16000 millisecond) countdown.
