How to programmatically add meta tag

I want to programmatically add “<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="30"/>” to a single page that I am writing.  It is using 2.0 in c#

I have a masterPage.  I am able to change the title of the page but whenever I add the above it breaks my styles and everything is the default html look.  The code that I am trying is below


protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


Master.Page.Title = title;

Master.MasterPageLabel.Text = "<h1>"+title+"</h1>";

Master.Page.Header.InnerHtml = "<meta http-equiv=\"Refresh\" content=\"30\"/>"



Title is declared earlier on the page.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

or this slight variation...but should also work with master pages...
