Peter and Bill,

Just for discussion's sake let's take this a step further...

It would be nice if I could somehow tell the dummy page that I was actually
active in the main document - i.e. only refresh the session by reloading
the page if they had been active (changing, focus/blur fields on the page)
in the last 5 minutes.

This way, the security of having the session time out would be preserved,
while keeping it open if they are actually keying data.

Maybe I could use a generic function for the onfocus, onblur or onchange
event for input fields on the document that would set a variable on the
dummy page indicating there is activity, causing the page to refresh within
the session timeout time span.  when the dummy page refreshes, this
variable would be reset to it's original value, and the page would only
refresh again if the variable was changed again.

Is there a way to condition the meta tag?   or, can a page be refreshed in
other ways?  is there a function or @command to retrieve the session
time-out value (I couldn't find one)?

Just thinking out loud..
