How do I refresh a page every 5 minutes ?

P: n/a
I have two websites....

I would like to create a frame on a page on website#1, which shows a page
from website#2

Furthermore, I would like the frame on website#1 to refresh every 5 minutes
or so.

I have HTML, ASP, VBSCRIPT and JAVASCRIPT at my disposal.

Many thanks

Set a timer to 5 minutes. When it goes off, reload the page in your
browser. Repeat.

Good luck.

VBScript will not work outside MSIE afaik.
Use a JavaScript with an onload trigger that sets a timer which runs a
function that refreshes the page and restarts the timer.

In some browsers a Refresh HTTP header or meta element might work as well
