Thanks Simon! I've used this before for pages that have moved but I
just didn't think of using it for a refresh!

The only negative with this solution is that it makes it almost
impossible to use the "back" button on the browser sensibly from that

What I might do is have the status page not refresh by default but
have a button and input field. The button would be "Auto Refresh"
(changing to "Stop Refresh" if pressed) and the input field would be
the number of seconds between refreshes. So if you want auto-refresh
then you press the button after you go to the status page.

Does that sound ok? Herb?

Cheers, Andrew
