Hi All

I am working on an application that creates an XHTML page from data acquired 
from a network of temperature sensors.

As this data is "live", it needs to be refreshed on a regular basis.  I have a 
mechanism that creates a refresh meta element so that the page will update a few 
seconds after ever poll of the sensors.

To make this accessible, would it be a simple case of starting off with no 
refresh (refresh element not included in page header) and having a link 
"automatic refresh" to start the cycle?  One would obviously have a "stop 
automatic refresh" control for when the cycle is running.

If this is sound, an application like this could make all sorts instrumentation
