      If you don't want to or cannot use SSI, try the META Refresh tag in
      the HTML header of your document.

      Why does no-one ever think of the simple solution?

        Hi Greg

        Sounds good.
        Can you tell me more about this tag, as I've never used it.

          OK, here's an example:
          The content value is number of seconds after page has been displayed
          before transfer takes place.

          <html><head><title>Lets go Surfin</title>
          <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="5; URL=script.cgi">
          </head>
          <body>

          Advice: If you are using perl for cgi, you really should know all
          there is to know about html as well.

            Hi Greg
            That's definitely a better solution.

            I have 4 books on html, and none explain the refresh meta tag.
            Do you know where I can get a list of all the tags, with explanations?
            Can't buy any more books yet, as the wife would kill me!

            Thanks, Bob.

            p.s. I suppose someone has to like BMW bikes (ha ha)
            I was a BSA fan myself, but no longer sadly (1953 BSA B31).
