Now if you need to refresh your web page every few seconds or every few minutes or at any time simply include the <meta> element along with the http-equiv attribute and content attribute. You will then need to include the refresh value for the http-equiv attribute in-order to tell the browser that it should refresh your web page. Next you will need to include the content attribute. The content attributes value should be a number which will tell the browser how many seconds until the current page reloads, for example, a value of ("30") will tell the browser to reload the web page every thirty seconds.

Now let me first show you the code by itself for the HTML snippet for refreshing your web page. And then I will show you how to code and where to place the HTML snippet for both HTML5 and XHTML5.

Here is the HTML code snippet below to refresh your web page every 5 minutes.

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="300" />

Here is the HTML code snippet to refresh your web page for HTML5 in the example below.

<!DOCTYPE html>
 <meta charset="UTF-8">
 <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="300">
 <title>Welcome To HTML5</title>
 <p>This web page will refresh every 5 minutes.</p>  


And here is the HTML code snippet to refresh your web page for XHTML5 in the example below.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en">  
 <meta charset="UTF-8" />
 <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="300" />
 <title>Welcome To XHTML5</title>

 <p>This web page will refresh every 5 minutes.</p>
