If a browser is non-javascript, then you can't get it to obey *any* javascript commands.  But that doens't mean you're completely stuck ...

Your best bet is to point a regular link to "australian_start.html" and, in the head of that document, include the following function onLoad...

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="javascript">
this.location='page_for_script_browsers.htm';
</SCRIPT>

Another option would be to script-comment out a meta-refresh ...

<HEAD>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="javascript">
<!--
// --> <META HTTP-EQUIVE="refresh" CONTENT=0;  URL="http://www.yourdomain.com/nonjavascriptpage.html"> <!--
// -->
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>

This is a bit tricky to follow - but basically, the "refresh" is commented out for javascript-capable browsers, whereas script-incapable browsers would interpret it and move on to the specified page.

HTTP-EQUIV is misspelled! (Not EQUIVE)
