response.redirect. This really leaves you with one option: client script.
You can response.write a small script that uses document.location.replace
and then response.flush to get it to the browser...

the meta tag refresh I believe is only valid within the <head> .  But oddly
it seems to work anywhere on the page  in most browsers.

I usually use a combination of meta refresh and script.
