If you simply want the current page to be replced with some other page
after a set time, you can do tha easily with HTML. We have our Library Home
page 'time-out' to our News page after a few minutes. All you do is put
this code into the HEAD part of the page:
This tells your browser to replace the current page
<http://library.adelaide.edu.au> after 120 seconds (2 minutes) with the
News page at <http://library.adelaide.edu.au/news/index.html>.
The news page has a similar code which returns to the home page.
We also use this idea for pages which have moved -- the original location
has a page which redirects the user to the new location, with the timeout
value set at 5 seconds.
Probably not what you wanted, but may help somebody!
