AFAIK Squid doesn't do any magic on an deny_info URL, it just sends a
redirect location header to the client pointing to that URL.

You will have to explicitely tell your squid to allow access to that
URL, something like:

acl MyDenyURL url_regex ^http://my.web.server/deny.html$

http_allow MyDenyUrl


http_deny MyDenyAcl !MyDenyURL

Hope it works...
