I am confused here.  In the above mentioned case, the URL, finished.html, 
now become an event which is a command in the Javascript instead of just a 
location. So we have "onload"....etc.

Neither Javascript : URLs or the meta-finish seems favourable to u.  
Javascript : URLS should be banned and meta-finish is non-standard. That's a 
bit tough.
