    cookie redirect

    Hi, I'm having a problem with cookie redirects. I have to use an external file to handle the redirect (just has to be this way - I know there are other ways to do it but it needs to be in this external file); but this breaks the back button as with back is clicked it kicks back to the redirect script which quickly forwards the user to the same page they are on (you can never go back unless you click it really fast).

    Also, this is an IE-only problem... anyone know of a workaround I can add to this code to let the back button work?

    Thanks!

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    
    <html>
    <head>
    	<title>Check Cookie</title>
    	
    	<script type="text/javascript">
    	// this function gets the cookie, if it exists
    function readCookie(name)
    {
    	var nameEQ = name + "=";
    	var ca = document.cookie.split(';');
    	for(var i=0;i < ca.length;i++)
    	{
    		var c = ca[i];
    		while (c.charAt(0)==' ') c = c.substring(1,c.length);
    		if (c.indexOf(nameEQ) == 0) return c.substring(nameEQ.length,c.length);
    	}
    	return null;
    }
    
    var region = readCookie( 'ex_cookie' );
    if (region == null)
    {
    	window.location = "http://www.example.com/Home";
    	}
    else
    {
    	window.location = "http://www.example.com/Home/" + region;
    	}
    
    
    </script>
    
    
    </head>
    
    <body>
    Redirecting...
    </body>
    </html>

    Code:
    if (region == null)
    {
    	location.replace("http://www.example.com/Home");
    }
    else
    {
    	location.replace("http://www.example.com/Home/" + region);
    }
    That replaces the current page in the history. So if you click the Back button, the page will not go to this page that has this code but to its previous page.
