Hi, not sure if this is an error, but IE4.01 doesn't work in the way the specification's 
example says the META http-equiv="refresh" should work.

http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/struct/global.html#h-7.4.4.2

says that to refresh a page to another url, ie redirect the client to a new
page you go:

<META http-equiv="refresh" content="3,http://www.acme.com/intro.html">

but this doesn't work in IE4.01  
However 

<META http-equiv="refresh" content="3 URL=http://www.acme.com/intro.html">

does work.

so maybe the spec has an error or maybe ie4 doesn't work, but I thought you
should know.

regards, 

Rory.
