How to reload page every 5 second?

I am converting one layout to html; once I make the changes in code/html/css, every time I have to hit F5. Is there any simple javascript/jQuery solution for this? I.e. after I add the script, reload the whole page every 5 seconds (or some other specific time).

Answer
 <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5; URL=http://www.yourdomain.com/yoursite.html">

If it has to be in the script use setTimeout like:

setTimeout(function(){
   window.location.reload(1);
}, 5000);
