You can either buffer the output, which of course means that you don't 
really send the output the browser, but you still get the chance to 
force the redirect after you perform some response.write() calls, or you 
could output some javascript to give the browser a new location URI.

The javascript method is the only way you can do it after you've 
actually started sending regular page output to the browser.
