Why avoid the refresh cookbook?

Better might be simply a refresh markup:

    (:refresh 20:)

Another option might be to do the other requested improvements
to (:redirect:) and allow delay as one of them.  Then it
could be simply:

    (:include {Quotes$RandomSection} :)
    (:redirect {=$FullName} quiet=1 delay=20:)

(The (:redirect:) at the end causes the page to redirect to
itself every 20 seconds.)

Of course, by doing this with (:redirect:), we could then
open ourselves to the possibility of creating automated slideshows
using (:pagelist:).  :-)
