Redirecting a Web page

P: n/a
I've spent the past month or so building my small business web site
(www.OpComm.com, in case anyone would care to take a look and provide
some comments).

I've realized that one of the pages, which is labelled Specialties,
and is named specialties.html, should really be called Services, and
the file should be services.html.

But, I've already let various search engines know about my page, and
they may have spidered it. So, I'm concerned about people clicking on
a link for OpComm.com/specialties.html, and coming up with a dead
link. Is there any way to keep the specialties.html page out there,
but put some html on is so that as soon as people reach it, they are
redirected to services.html?

Thanks in advance for all replies.

This isn't a job for HTML, it is a job for HTTP, specificalled a Moved
response with a Location header.

How you implement this depends on your webserver environment. Check the
manual for your webserver, or put a CGI (or other server side programming
component) that issues the header in place of the old page .
