multiline document.write or better method

I'm trying to dynamiclly build my web pages for ie and netscape users so that the page is constructed differently for each at the time the page loads, depending on the browser, so far, this is what I'm doing ....

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title>Browser Check ...</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="styles/url.css">
<script language="javascript">
     var uagent;uagent = navigator.userAgent;
     if (uagent.substring(25,29)=="MSIE" && uagent.charAt(30) > 2)
       document.write("<META HTTP-EQUIV='Refresh' CONTENT='0; URL=http://fibdev.com/ie/'>")
     else
       document.write("<META HTTP-EQUIV='Refresh' CONTENT='0; URL=http://fibdev.com/non-ie/'>")
</script>
</head>
</html>

I've tryed to substitute the "document.write" line with html for my ie site code, but I get a syntax error.  I've tryed doing multiple document.write's, but to no avail.  Is there a better way to do this than the approch I'm attempting?

No need for meta tags to redirect:

<script language="javascript">
var ver = navigator.appVersion;
if (ver.indexOf("MSIE") !=-1 && parseInt(ver) > 2)
   window.location='http://fibdev.com/ie/';
else window.location='http://fibdev.com/non-ie/';
</script>

if you want the page to be written, watch the quotes:

<script language="javascript">
var ver = navigator.appVersion;
IE = (ver.indexOf("MSIE") !=-1 && parseInt(ver) > 2)
var text = "";
if (IE) {
   text += '<TIT'+'LE>IE specific page</TIT'+'LE>';
   text += '<BO'+'DY TEXT="#FFFFFF" BACKGROUND="#000000">';
   text += '<H3>Hello and welcome to my IE page </H3>';
   text += '</BO'+'DY>';
}
else {
   text += '<TIT'+'LE>IE specific page</TIT'+'LE>';
   text += '<BO'+'DY TEXT="#FFFFFF" BACKGROUND="#000000">';
   text += '<H3>Hello and welcome to my non-IE page </H3>';
   text += '</BO'+'DY>';
}

document.write(text);
</script>
