It's not VBScript, but try this:
 <META http-equiv="refresh" content="(time to wait before moving on); url=(url to go to)">
So it could look like this:
 <META http-equiv="refresh" content="10,http:\\www.experts-exchange.com">
 <META http-equiv="refresh" content="10,welcome.htm">
In the second example, the path is relative to the current page, use the first example to go to a different site.
I use this on an IIS4 server, in .ASP and .HTM pages, IE3, IE4, Netscape, works fine.

Redirecting browsers in VB-Script....here is one of the three commands. This should answer you question. Anymore just ask.

window.location.href = "URL goes here in the quotes"
