OK first of all, not all browsers do this: Netscape 2 and greater, Explorer 3.1 but not 3.0 I think, but anyway...

Put this code into the <HEAD>...</HEAD> portion of your page:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="n ; URL=url">

Where n is the number of seconds and url is the url you want it to go to. If you just want it to refresh itself then you don't put the URL=url part.
