I think the quotes are strangely placed in the 'format' statement below 
(assuming it was copied/pasted).

> put format("<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;URL="&tURL&  ">") into
would produce

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=https......

There should be another \" after the 0 for content.

Might be that some browsers can figure out what was intended and some can't.
