Hello !

	Currently I found that the following syntax for META refresh works in most browsers.
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="10;URL=http://www.acme.com/intro.html">

But the ones specified in http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/html40.txt
<META http-equiv="refresh" content="3,http://www.acme.com/intro.html">

does not seem to work and provide backward compatibility for previous versions.

Note that the new HTML 4.0 uses a comma "," to separate the URL and also the URL variable is done away with.

Is there any consensus on this issue ?
