What is the proper Javascript syntax to force a reload of the current window?
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

 

<html>

<head>

	<title>Tester 2</title>

<script language="javascript">

	function show_where() {

		where = document.referrer;

		jj = where.indexOf("hk");

		if (jj != -1) {

			document.getElementById('clink').href = "tester4.htm";

			document.getElementById('clink').text = "Going to Chinese Site";

			document.self.reload();

		}	

		alert("Where we are going " + document.getElementById('clink').href);

		

		return true;

	}

</script>	

</head>

 

<body onLoad="show_where();">

<a href="tester3.htm" name="clink">Click here for next</a>

 

 

</body>

</html>

Open in new window
