You can use something like the following:


<html>
<head>
<script>
function showit()
{
      window1=window.open('','window1','width=400,height=200');
      window1.document.write("name="+document.form1.name.value+"  exercise=");
      if (document.form1.exercise1.checked)
            window1.document.write(document.form1.exercise1.value+" ");
      if (document.form1.exercise2.checked)
            window1.document.write(document.form1.exercise2.value+" ");
      if (document.form1.exercise3.checked)
            window1.document.write(document.form1.exercise3.value);
      window1.document.close();      
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<FORM name="form1">
                  Client's Name<INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="name" SIZE=35>

                  <P>
                  <INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="exercise1"
                  VALUE="ex1">EXERCISE 1<BR>

                  <INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="exercise2"
                  VALUE="ex2">EXERCISE 2<BR>

                  <INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="exercise3"
                  VALUE="ex3">EXERCISE 3<BR>

                  ETC,ETC...<P>

                  <INPUT TYPE="button" NAME="test" value="test" OnClick=showit()>

Thanks, Faster.........
The only concern I have is the 50 or so "if,then" statements I will need........
I wonder, could we replace all the "if (document.form1.exercise1.checked)" statements with a routine such as "for i = 1 to n"
if (document.form1.i.checked)
window1.document.write(document.form1.i.value);

where n is the number of exercises in the menu.

this would shorten the script considerably, I'd think.
Do you care to try??
