    I dont know exactly what you mean.

    Do you mean the setTimeout() function for JavaScript?

    are you looking for a redirect? Or a script that just times out after a period of time?

    Code:
    <HTML>
    <BODY onLoad="window.setTimeout("window.url.href='main.html'",5000)">
    redirecting in 5 seconds....
    </BODY>
    </HTML>

    ok.. so it's not shorter, but here it is...
    Code:
     
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="3;URL=http://www.some.org/some.html">

    Use the meta tag, it is more portable. Just damn hard to remember.
