Popup demo - how to pop up a page in another window

Popup anchor tag control

This page poped up in another window because the index.html contained an A (anchor) tag in the following form:

<A HREF="popup.html" target="new">

The target="new" part of the A (anchor) tag is what caused your browser to create a new window. ... Unless your browser disables or does not understand such pop-up windows.

Annoying, isn't it? You might want to think twice before you incorporate this feature into your web site. It has it uses in limited cases, but it can be over used as well.
