Redirecting broswers in Py

First of all, a hint.. you can use """ or ''' or ' to surround
strings, so you could do:

c.send("""<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh"Content=0;Host="">""")

Hmm reading this example you seem to be missing a ; between refresh
and content, could be a 'news' bugg.

Are you only sending this answer?? as reply? You know that you need to
send status back also with headers and so on, like 

HTTP/1.0 200 ok
[empty line]
[HTML containting your redirection]

An alternative could be to send a "HTTP/1.0 302 Redirect" answer to
the browser, including as header the location to move to.
