I'll leave it to others to comment on the markup.  But 2 alternate
solutions which may be of interest:

(1) Make your "We'll be back in a week or so" on an internal wiki page
and do all your redirects to that -- thus no external redirect is
(2) Don't do it in markup at all but in config.php create your
appropriate conditional statement and then issue the header() call
directly.  That also avoids the hassle of having to edit 30 pages...

There's probably good reasons not to use those approaches, but I tho't
I'd throw them out anyway just in case it simplifies things...
