Reload page with current time as URL parameter

I wrote two functions in javascript. The first function displays the current time on the screen. The second takes that time and reloads the page after 5 seconds sending the current value as a URL parameter. Except once I put in the variable the .window.location stops working.

I am not very experienced with javascript and can not seem to figure what I am doing wrong. Here is the code:

<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html> 
<head> 
<script> 
function currentTime() { 
var today=new Date(); 
var Y=today.getFullYear(); 
var M=today.getMonth(); 
var D=today.getDate(); 
var h=today.getHours(); 
var m=today.getMinutes(); 
var s=today.getSeconds(); 
m = checkTime(m); 
s = checkTime(s); 

document.getElementById('clock').innerHTML = Y+ "-"+M+ "-"+D+ " "+h+":"+m+":"+s; 
var t = setTimeout(function(){currentTime()},500); 
} 

function checkTime(i) { 
if (i<10) {i = "0" + i}; // add zero in front of numbers < 10 
return i; 
} 
</script> 

<script> 
<!-- 
function Redirect() 
{ 
window.location.replace = “page.html?var=" Y+ "-"+M+ "-"+D+ " "+h+":"+m+":"+s; 
} 

setTimeout('Redirect()', 5000); 
// 
</script> 
</head> 


<body onload="currentTime()"> 
<div id="clock"></div> 
</body> 
</html> 

Open in new window


Any help would be appreciated.
