why don't you try it and find out?

both of those tags send a header command to the browser.

cfscheduled pages act as if they were called from the browser, but redirects
are not allowed.

in CFMX, a task calling a page with cflocation in it will throw an error
when you try to execute it.
i imagine this behavior is the same in CF5 and earlier (things rarely become

if you change the cflocation to a meta-refresh, it won't throw the error,
but it won't follow the redirect either.
