refresh error

Post by roedygr » Wed Mar 19, 2014 1:56 am

I have some markup like this:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5; URL=bgloss.html">

14.02 complains:

When http-equiv="refresh", the content attribute must be 1) a valid non-negative integer or 2) a valid non-negative integer, followed by a ";" character, followed by one or more space characters, followed by "URL=" (case insensitive), followed by a valid URL that does not start with a quotation character.
---
If redirecting to another page, the use of server redirects by means of HTTP 3xx codes is preferred for performance and efficiency reasons. If this page is auto-refreshing, then ensure that the user has been informed of it and provide a means of stopping it. Auto-refreshing pages can unknowingly expose mobile users to unexpected usage costs, especially if the page is left running unnoticed in the background.

What's the problem?

Hello,

I'm sorry for the trouble.

This is a bug that has been fixed in v14.0201. If you re-download then you should get the update.
