It's the Java method of implementing a Location: <page> redirect.  So
the user's browser would immediately jump to the redirected site,
rather than pulling up the HTML and waiting a specified number of
seconds before going where the <meta> tag sent it (I'm guessing
redirects with the <meta> tag is what you mean by an HTML redirect).
Since it modifies the headers of the HTTP, you have to make the call
before you flush any output to the client, or it throws an exception.
