Refresh(?)

    Hi:

    On a small web site I am looking after (http://www.myjourney.ca/weather.shtml)
    I have a small "weather panel"
    (<a href="http://www.wunderground.com/global/stations/71368.html">
    <img
    src="http://banners.wunderground.com/banner/gizmotimetemp_both/language/www/global/stations/71368.gif")

    However, the time (and temparature also, I imagine) stays at what it was when
    the page was first opened.

    Is there a script or command I can insert so that this link will be refreshed
    every one minute or so?

    I have googled "refresh" and found several examples of refreshing a whole page,
    but not just a linked image in a page.

    Thanks!

    you can do it if you use frames but......
    I bet you don't like frames either?

    Refreshing just part of the page will involve frames or JavaScript (AJAX,
    for example, is about refreshing parts of the page without a complete
    reload). Considering the fact that both are a bloat and quite unnecessary,
    I suggest you use metatags to refresh the entire page.

    Wunderground used to embed the text in the image so I could snatch it but
    they now (starting last month) display text on top of a background that
    represents the current conditions. Have you found a workaround?

    Use an iframe, to include in a page that does the refresh.

    Thanks for that information, Joe

    What else don't I like?

    Roy: After the information given to me here, I'm considering to just leave
    things as they are. After all, how important is it really what I was trying to
    do?

    I'm afraid my knowledge of all this is so limited I don't really understand what
    you are asking.
    I have not sseen any difference in the way this is shown on my site.

    Thanks for your input!

    Thanks, data64!
    As I responded to Roy:
    "After the information given to me here, I'm considering to just leave
    things as they are. After all, how important is it really what I was trying to
    do?"

    I really don't want to get into frames.
    Thanks again!

    Probably not very. At most, I would suggest you add something like this:

    <p>Refresh the page for the latest weather conditions.</p>

    but I'm sure most of your visitors could work that out for themselves
    anyway, particularly since the time doesn't change. :)

    *I* didn't say that I don't like people who monkey with other monkeys.
    However, there's a story (I don't think it is scientifically proven) that the
    first appearance of AIDS in humans came as as result of "people monkeying with a
    monkey"

    I merely said that "A *wise* monkey is a monkey who doesn't monkey
    with an other monkey's monkey."
    And I'll stand by that . . .
