You can add to each page of the site a

 <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0, http://.....index.html">

which will redirect the visitor to the index.html page.

But I don't find it's a good solution (some browsers, as Lynx, display
a confirmation message).

I hope that with XHTML and XLink (working draft), the following element
will be recognized :

 <link rev="start" href="index.html" xml:link="simple" actuate="auto" />

It would play exactly the same role but it will be more "official".

[The 'actuate' attribute accepts two values : 'auto', which means the link
will be followed automatically, and 'user', which means it will be
followed when the user clicks it]
