It should be this:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://some.where.else">
                                      ^^^^ url= is needed.

alternativly you could output a Location: header to redirect which
can be done with a simple CGI script:

echo -e "Location: http://some.where.else\n\n"

or with a PHP

<? echo header("Location: http://some.where.else"); ?>
