response.sendRedirect with time delay

I am using response.sendRedirect(url) to direct a user another url after they have input some info in a form and clicked submit.
So on the process page of the form, I want to display something like the following before the user is redircetd to another page:
"Thanks for your details...we are taking you back to....."
With my code, the user is simply redirected to the (url) in question when they click on the submit button, and doesn't seen the text I want to display.

Note: Ive just realised it would be something like JavaRanch forums, after you submit a new post, the user is displayed: Sit tight we are taking you back to url; before the user is directed to that url.
Do you know how I would implement this?

alternatively you can try this
http-equiv="refresh" content="5;URL=">
<body bgcolor="#ffffff">
<center>You will be redirected to javaranch automatically in 5 seconds.
