META refresh tag - browser redirect method

If a web page contains the following META tag in the HEAD section:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" content="10; url=index.html">

Then it will cause a browser to junk to the index.html URL in 10 seconds.

Typically such a META tag is placed before the TITLE tag.

You can see this in action by clicking on the redirect-demo link.
