Chapter 19. Extras > Creating an Automatic Slide Show

Creating an Automatic Slide Show

This isn't really an extra, but it's so unusual, I didn't know quite where else to put it. You can use a special feature of the META attribute, within the HEAD section, to automatically move the reader from one page to another. If you set up a series of pages in this way, you create a Web slide show.

To create an automatic slide show:

1.
In the first page, within the HEAD section, type > META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh". (That's a regular hyphen between HTTP and EQUIV.)

2.
Type CONTENT="n; where n is the number of seconds the current page should display on the screen.

3.
Type URL=nextpage.html"> where nextpage.html is the URL of the next page that you want the visitor to jump to automatically.

4.
Repeat these steps for each page in the series.
