I'd go for the server side option, as:

A) you don't have to send an HTML file to the client before the redirect

B) you can't guarantee that the redirect on the client browser will work, as
Javascript may be turned off or the browser may not support Meta-Refresh.

This applies to all server side scripting languages, not just ASP.
