Splash Screen will do just that. Splash pages can be used to tell your visitors
a little bit about your site or whatever you'd like. The great thing about

messages have been completed, the script will navigate to the URL of your
choice. It also includes a link on the splash page that says, "Skip Intro."

your web site. If you offer your visitors a free publication, try placing
your subscription information within this new window. This provides a great
