I run a couple of small special interest web sites (e.g.
http://www.btinternet.com/~lvrc/ ) and subscribe to this list for education.
I use the 'idiocy' to provide a standard, simple, here-I-am lead-in to the
site. I would like to ask (genuine interest, not rhetorical smartass),
what's wrong with what I do and thus with Refresh? What should I do instead?

Best Regards, Roy Gardiner  (PS apologies to Arjun who gets this twice
because I forgot to read the To button before pressing Send and had to do it
again).
