This seems quite unrelated to the topic you replied to but...

You can put something like this in the <HEAD> of your webpage:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="15">

where 15 is the number of seconds to wait in this example. This assumes 
the page contains a script which displays the current data every time 
it's called.
