A friend, called Mark Mitchell telephoned me and said that he needed the equivalent of 'Response.Redirect' (in an ASP file) in an HTM file.

I had an answer - I had recently needed to do it myself !!


O<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<html>
<head>
<title>Test redirect</title>
</head>
<body>
<br>

<form name="thisForm" method="post" 
action="http://www.the-page-that-you-want-to-go-to.whatever" 
target="_top">

<input type="hidden" name="fred">
</form>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript">

document.thisForm.submit();
</script>
</body>
</html>


		

Simple lateral thinking !!

The same technique could be used to return details about the Client Browser such as

silently !!!
