He wants inline like:
<a href="#" onclick='window.open("page.html", "", "width=500, height=400, toolbar=no, location=no, directories=no, status=no, menubar=no");'>Pop it</a>

This is exactly what you're after.
It's the most user friendly way of going about it.
Users can click it, right-click (open new window) and even bookmark the link without getting a JS error.
<a href="http://www.youngpup.net/" title="YoungPup.net" onclick="window.open(this.href,
resizable,menubar=1,location=1,toolbar=1'); return false;"> YoungPup.net</a>
It comes from youngpup.net, hence the the link...
*edit: You beat me zoobie :)

Heh heh...but that throws an error and is no different than <a href="http://yahoo.com">Yahoo!</a> if the whole window is replaced.

I must have stuffed it up when I copied from the source of my site...:o
Here it is again, no errors, user friendly...:D
<a href="http://www.youngpup.net/" title="YoungPup.net" onclick="window.open(this.href, 'popupwindow', 'width=800,height=600,scrollbars,resizable,menubar=1,location=1,toolbar=1'); return false;"> YoungPup.net</a>
zoobie: try it, it's very different to a standard <a>

Hey, thanks for the help Zoobie. That's exactly what I was looking for, a simple inline code. My approach just wasn't the right approach. Only one question, what does the # stand for when you put in in the href=? As for the use of pop ups, that's what I needed to go with the flow of my site, regardless of whether their out of style or not. I have everything loading in an <iframe>, and I wanted a specific part to open outside of the <iframe> without moving people all over away from where they're at. I'll post a link here as soon as I get it all done so you'll see why they're so important. But thanks again for the help.

This may not sound like a big problem, but if you we're using a page the you knew had its content within an iframe, wouldn't you open a link in a new window so as to not lose your place? So would I, and so would any seasoned web surfer.
The second code snippet I posted will not cause any such problem.
Merely a heads up :D
