re: The visitor doesn't even know they were redirected.
This is usually not true. Usually when redirection occurs it puts the user
in an endless loop when they click their Back button. They go back to just
get redirected again. Of course when this happens you should click the
arrow on your back button (IE) or click the Go button (NS) and go back two
If there is a way the page designer can prevent this endless loop situation,
I'd like to hear about it.
