    Link to window.open function (help)

    I am trying to open a document or window from

    <a href="#" onclick="javascript: Open_Win();"><img src="images/Touching-God-Fast.jpg" alt="Touching God Fast" width="320" height="65" border="0"></a>

    Where the function Open_Win() is:

    function Open_Win()
    window.open("http://www.crosst.org/Touching-God-Fast.html","Touching God Fast","scrollbars=yes, statusbar=yes, height=500, width=850");

    Works great on a Mac but under IE in windows xp it states that there is an error on the page. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    <a href="#" onclick="Open_Win();"><img src="images/Touching-God-Fast.jpg" alt="Touching God Fast" width="320" height="65" border="0"></a>

    function Open_Win()
    window.open("http://www.crosst.org/Touching-God-Fast.html","Touching_God_Fast","scrollbars=yes, statusbar=yes, height=500, width=850");

    No spaces in the name of the window, and no need for javascript: in onclick.

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.
