On the other hand, using meta refresh to do redirects is a SHOULD NOT
in the HTML specification (because you should use HTTP redirects), even
though the specification doesn't actually normatively define what 
meta refresh does!

(Note that browsers actually implement Refresh as a proprietory 
HTTP header, but that is still the wrong way to do redirects.)
