META refresh (redirect)

118 100+

I am making a site as part of a project/presentation. Others used Powerpoint but I decided to make a website with various pages within it.

On one of the pages 'Humanities', there are several parts to the page; History, Geography, RE, Citizenship, etc... which are all named, so there are links to #history, #geography on the page.

As to keep the presentation like a ppt presentation, I have made the pages redirect after 25 seconds (or there abouts) so the index page directs to the next page, to the next page and so on.

I was wondering whether I could get the Humanities page to redirect from the top to #geography (I've managed that part using the META refresh tag) but then it would have to redirect again to #RE then to #Citizenship and the like.
~Is it possible, using a META refresh tag, to refresh the same page more than once, to different parts each time? If not, which is likely, how could I do it in any other way?

It might be possible using DHTML to do what you want, but not with just html. Using javascript a timer can be set, after x number of seconds the timer can trigger an event. But you need to ask in the javascripting forum how to do that or if it is even possible. Some browsers may not allow that behavior and if javascript is disabled it will not work at all.
