HTML Meta Refresh

For those of you that are looking for a clean way to redirect without using another language (ie JavaScript, PHP, Pearl, ColdFusion). This way you don't have to reply on the end user having a special language installed. You can use a HTML Meta Refresh but just know that the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) discourages it's use because the "back" button in some cases will not work (takes you back to the redirect, redirecting you to back again).

 

 

You can change the refresh time by changing the content="0 to something like content="5 for 5 seconds waiting until the redirect happens.
