CLIENT PULL: MAKE THE JUMP

Meta tags can also be used to control the loading of an HTML document. For instance, you can use meta tags to set up a "Client Pull" — make your page automatically jump to and load another page without a user's prompt. Just embed the following code in your <head></head> tag:

<meta http-equiv=refresh content="10;url=http://www.jump.com">

...where 10 is the number of seconds you want the current page to be displayed before the jump, and http://www.jump.com is the URL of the site or specific page that you want the user to jump to.

meta tags are invisible; they will not display when previewing your HTML document through a Web browser. For this reason, meta tags must fall after the <title></title> tag, between your <head></head> tag, and before the <body> tag as in the following example:

<html>
<head>
<title>
This text would contain the title of your page</title>
<meta http-equiv=refresh content="10;url=http://www.jump.com">
</head>
<body>
