My preferred method
<a href="somepage.htm" target="sometarget" onclick="window.open(this.href, this.target, features); return false;">link</a>

Go with beetle's suggestion. It looks like it is more backwards compliant. :o

Beetle: I not clear on the end part of the popup window code you gave me:
(this.href, this.target, features);">
Is this.href and this.target the same source as "somepage.htm" and "sometarget"? And what is features. Can you throw together a quick example. Thanks in advance!

I get what the features are: toolbar, size, etc, but I didn't get that to work. I did get the window to open in a popup though.

features is a comma separated string of window features. The most common features are (with their datatype) width: integer
toolbar: booleanThe width, height, top and left all pertain to the popup's size and position. All the rest of these features are literally window features location - the address bar
menubar - File Edit View etc...
scrollbars - duh
status - the statusbar at the bottom of the window
toolbar - The back, foward, home, etc buttonsNow, by default, all the window features are off, or have a false value, so you only need to include those which you want to be true.
window.open( this.href, this.target, 'width=300, height=200, top=100, left=100, status=1, scrollbars=1, toolbar=1');
This opens a 300x200 window, positioned at 100,100 with the statubar, scrollbars, and the toolbar.

How do I list the target? I have it as target="_blank", but what about the this.target. What do I do with that?
Here's my current code:
<a href="case.html" target="_blank" onClick="window.open(case.html),'height=300, width=300, top=100, left=100, status=1, scrollbars=1, toolbars=1';">link</a>

<a href="case.html" target="_blank" onClick="window.open(this.href, this.target,'height=300, width=300, top=100, left=100, status=1, scrollbars=1, toolbars=1'); return false;">link</a>

If concerned with older Netscape browsers, don't use spaces between the window parameters.
