No, no that is not what i am after, I know how to do that but it's not what I 
  I wrote some code a year or so ago with words, they refreshed every 5 or so 
seconds WITHOUT REFRESHING THE PAGE.  It was written in JavaScript as i can 
remember.  But I can't find where I did it. I want to have the code or a 
similar one without the need to re-write it.  
  The code does not require the page refreshing at all, just loops in a script 
and outputs.  I might have to do some web surfing on it, pity I can't remeber 
where it is.
  If anyone could help that would be great.
  It's for a PHP site using MySQL.  I am considering having the slogans in a 
database this time rather than just a text file.

  Yes I can help you there..

There is a technique you can use which is actually more "browser" 
friendly then the Javascript alternative you mentioned..

You can use the META tags in your page as such:


will refresh page in 10 seconds


will reload page in 10 seconds and direct browser to one of my first 
highschool webpages..

For a quick reference I found this via the I'm Feeling Lucky of Google: 

Otherwise the good ole' W3C at www.w3c.org will have some great doco's 
on it too

enjoy ;-)
