The following links may be of help. I never tried this in a production site,
but I have seen it working... Basically you have three options:

1. You can use the mulipart feature of HTML. I am not sure what versions of
HTTP/HTML you need. It may not work with older browsers and you must have it
delivered via a web server.

2. You can use a META tag to have automatic refresh or replace happen:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="2;URL=http:nextdoc.html">
this does not even require a web server (you can use this with local files)

3. You can use JavaScript to do this (as was described before by some other
email). This does require a Java or JavaScript enabled browser and may have
compatibility problems between Netscape and IE...

If you're just trying to do an automatic "slide show" which changes pages in
sequence I would think that either method 2 or 3 is the best. Method 2 is
simpler, but the JavaScript approach is more flexible .

Hi all,
Does anyone know of an HTML tag that will allow me to have a site that
scrolls through the pages automatically with a pre-set interval? I need to
set up a site for a display and no mouse or keyboard will be availabe!
Thanks in anticipation.
