Both multiple html blocks and meta-refresh are non-standard and not
guaranteed to work. (To be honest, I'm surprised the two <html>s
works at all!)

I'd go for a JavaScript move-to-page, with text link as backup for
if JS is unavailable, eg.:

  <html><head>
    <title>Wait! Or Die!</title>
  </head><body onload="location.replace('finished.html');">
    <pre>
      Wait: ######################## (etc.)
    </pre>
    <p>
      OK, you can <a href="finished.html">continue</a> now.
    </p>
  </body></html>
