I've just implemented this (as I described in the last email) and I
found a problem. When the page refreshes it reloads all elements,
rather than just going to the new page. This means it reloads the 6
images we well as the main page.

With a refresh time of 10 seconds these 42 hits per minute were enough
to trigger the automatic denial of service preventer in inetd and it
shut down swat. Nasty!

So, does someone know a varient of the above incantation that causes
browsers to just load the specified page without flushing all elements
from the current page from their cache? I'm using Netscape 4.04 if it

Maybe we'll need that javascript stuff after all :-(
