     You can cause a page to automatically refresh every n seconds using the HTML Meta Refresh. This is great for chat sites, real time monitoring sites or any other site where you must have up to date real-time information. This example will reload itself every 5 seconds and display the current time. Note: Replace the name test3.asp with whatever name you call this script.
