Subject Re: asynchronous downloads
Date Thu, 03 Oct 2002 14:10:27 GMT
I think many sites use the meta refresh html tag.  i.e.

<html><head>
...
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="2;URL=file_i_want_to_download.gz">
...

Netscape has a complete reference on this at 
http://developer.netscape.com/docs/manuals/htmlguid/tags3.htm#1697602

You could probably also set a refresh header.

I hope this helps.
