Redirection problem

I have the following code in my index.htm file:
<html>

<head>
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0"; URL="http://www.hyrum.net/wwbl/wwbl.shtml">
</head>

<body>
</body>
</html>

All it keeps doing is refreshing index.htm when I want it to redirect to wwbl.shtml  What am I doing wrong?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

.. that is, they should be in the same string.

I hate EE's new word-wrap "feature".

You can try setting the content to 1 instead of 0, or you can try the javascript way of doing it:

<BODY onLoad='location="http://www.hyrum.net/wwbl/wwbl.shtml";'>
