This example shows how to redirect a web browser to another page. The JavaScript performs a countdown of the number of seconds left before the redirection is performed.

<HTML>
<HEAD>
  <TITLE>"Some Page" has moved!</TITLE>
  <META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT=6;URL=http://www.codebits.com/>
  <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript">
    <!--
    function countdown() {
      if ( document.myform.count.value > 0 ) {
        document.myform.count.value = document.myform.count.value-1;
        setTimeout("countdown()", 1000);
      }
    }
    //-->
  </SCRIPT>
  </HEAD>
  <BODY><H1>"Some Page" has Moved!</H1>
  The new address is: 
  <A HREF="http://www.codebits.com/" TARGET=_top>http://www.codebits.com</A>.
