I know how to do an HTML content redirection (e.g. in 5 seconds you'll be
redirec to...) but...

I have a javascript countdown timer.  It goes for a few hours.  At the end,
I want to dispaly "times up", wait 10 more seconds, and then redirect to
another page.  Is there a javascript way to do this, and would it work
going back to IE4 and NN4.5?
