This use of http-equiv (although direct Refresh HTTP headers actually
work) is specifically outlawed in the current HTML specifications (4.01),
although largely ignored, as most people don't read them.  Refresh,
itself, is a Netscape proprietory extension to HTTP.

It's outlawed in non-normative text as the HTML specification doesn't
specify Refresh normatively in the first place.
