Secrets of the Office Masters: Using HTTP-EQUIV and Meta Data

HTML documents enable you to define special attributes known as HTTP-EQUIV tags and Meta tags. The HTTP-EQUIV tags enable you to define a limited set of HTTP response headers that the receiving browser should acknowledge. The Meta tags define data about the information within the page, such as the date of the information, its author, and the program used to generate the content. You define both of these attributes in the Custom tab of the Page Properties dialog box.

You can use HTTP-EQUIV tags to perform some useful effects. For example, use the Refresh attribute with a numeric value to cause the browser to automatically refresh the page—that is, fetch it again from the Web server—at the specified interval (in seconds). Set the value to 0 to cause the page to refresh immediately. For a simple banner ad manager, use this in a page within a frame set that changes an ad every time the page is fetched.
