Hi Experts,

Can someone please remind me how to do a page redirect in HTML?  I believe it was under <head>.

Thank you.

I use something like:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
//<![CDATA[
  window.location = "http://www.filecats.co.uk/sitemap/";
//]]>
</script>

I use the same kind of thing as Phillip has, however there's some additional text to make sure if the redirect fails for any reason it includes a link to the page.

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html lang="en-US">
    <head>
        <meta charset="UTF-8">
        <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;url=http://google.com">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            window.location.href = "http://google.com"
        </script>
        <title>Page Redirection</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <!-- Note: don't tell people to `click` the link, just tell them that it is a link. -->
        If you are not redirected automatically, follow the <a href='http://google.com'>link here</a>.
    </body>
</html>

Why not just  <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;url=http://google.com">

nothing wrong with the meta refresh tag, I've used it a lot in the past. Are you looking to do a permanent redirect? If so you may want to consider using a server side language so that you can add a status code (permanent recirect) to it, making it easier for spiders to index.
