I generally use a different approach. After taking care of every link 
still pointing at that page, I load an almost empty new page with the 
same name, in which I offer a very brief explanation plus a few links 
(homepage, sitemap, search page) to let the user find his/her way 
around. I also add a metatag of NOINDEX, FOLLOW to encourage search 
engines to drop sooner or later the going-to-be-deleted page.
