HowTo provide the user the ability to turn refresh off?

Hi list,

I have a set of web pages at:
Click on "forecast" or "current," or some other weather information link.

The page refreshes the map every 300 seconds. How do I give the user the
option to turn this refresh off. Better yet, I would like to provide the user
the option of turning the refresh off, and on at will.

The pages are written in:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

The option allowing refresh is:
<meta http_equiv="REFRESH" contents="300">

Thanks for any suggestions.
