Switching automatically to another page

I need to have a page immediately switch to another page.  I need  system that will work with most browsers.

Basically what I want is when a user lands on my home page, they are immediatley (and preferably invisibly) switched to the home page of another site.  I want regular HTML, no java please!

All you need is to put this tag inbetween your <head> </head> tags.

<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=newpage.html">

The 0; is the timer (in seconds) and the higher the number, the longer it waits before automatically going to the URL. This is a Meta Tag understood by at least 98% of the Browsers in use today. And because Meta Tags cannot be turned off, every Browser will follow it.
