Comment(by davidsarah):

 If all of these work, option C seems to be the simplest. Option A requires
 an ftp server, which seems like an unwarranted excursion if we can
 possibly avoid it. Option B depends on more of the DOM and HTML, hence
 greater exposure to browser idiosyncrasies, than option C does.

 (The location URL in option C needs to be properly escaped for an URL-in-
 JSStringLiteral-in-HTML-in-JSStringLiteral-in-JSStringLiteral-in-HTML, but
 that's straightforward :-)
