[I commented out the meta tag on this page because it was causing too many browsers to bounce back and forth and back and forth. Go to html-redirect.html for a live example]

This page shows how to use an HTML <META> tag in the header to redirect to another page. The <META> tag goes in the <HEAD> section of your HTML document. The <META> tag on this page looks like:

      CONTENT="5; URL=html-redirect.html">
The "5" means to wait 5 seconds before redirecting. The "html-redirect.html" after "url=" is the URL of the page to which to redirect.

These two pages, "html-redirect.html" and "html-redirect2.html", will continue to switch back and forth until you close the window.

It is customary to include a direct link to the page that will be switched to automatically in case you get an older browser that doesn't support the feature or the user doesn't want to wait. Something like:

This page has moved. If your browser doesn't automatically redirect to its new location, click here.
