the iframe initially will load page1.htm that invoke the timer and proceed to load page2.htm
to avoid user pressing BACK button after page2.htm is shown (that will reset the timer), I proceed to code a document.location="page3.htm" at onload in page2.htm
(the page2.htm is actually an intermediate dummy page)
page3.htm is the one that contains some real html that might take a few seconds to load.
has iframe containing
- page1.htm --->--> page2.htm ---->- page3.htm
> invoke timer > load page3.htm > contains final html shown
> load page2.htm
it works OK on my production laptop, with speedy loading/compilation of the pages (actually they're jsp)
BUT in LP server.. the loading of page3 lags a bit, and this causes the timer to halt permanently.
