The JavaScript procedure is
window.open("page.html", "MyNewWindow")
To open a window when a page is loaded, simply put it in the body tag:
<BODY onLoad='window.open("page.html", "MyNewWindow")'>
To open a window when a link is clicked, put it in the relevant anchor:
<a href="page1.html" onClick='window.open("page2.html", "MyNewWindow")'>blabla</a>
Note the use of single and double quotes.

It can be done using only HTML, no javascript needed:

<a href="newpage.htm" target="newwindow">open this in a new window</a>

It will open a new window when the name "newwindow" is not yet in use for a frame or window.

Yep, sybe.
Note that the JavaScript procedures have other effects though.
Use the scripts if you need to load more than one page at the time,
otherwise the target attribute is sufficient.
