[Techtalk] http refresh?

Hi list,

I'm trying to use an <http-equiv content="Refresh"> tag to refresh a page 
to a new location defined at runtime in a (perl) cgi script. I'm making 
the tag like this:

my $tag = '<meta http-equiv="Refresh"  content="1;'
          . $self->{q}->url

and sticking it the header.

This works as expected under firefox but ignores the parameters in IE. Do 
I need to escape the ? somehow? What is firefox doing that IE isn't? 

Any suggestions appreciated ;)
