javascript redirect when onunload

I'd like my page to redirect a user to a specific page onunload. Like this:

<body onUnload="window.location = 'http://www.google.com/'">

but this doesn't really seem to be working. Any ideas?

Thanks

first try this:

<body onunload="alert('sad')">

if got alert then it should work.

<script>
function Redirect() {
var where=URL TO BE REDIRECTED TO;
window.location=where;
}
</script><body onUnLoad="Redirect()">

You could always try something like this:

<script>
function closeIt()
{
  window.location='http://google.com';
  return true;
}
window.onbeforeunload = closeIt;
</script>

A potential drawback is that you are prompted with a "Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page?" dialog box.
