loading a pre-build HTML file from CGI

How do you load an exiting HTML page from CGI that
would open a new page on screen rather than replacing
the existing page of the current browser.
My current script does the following:
printf("<html><head><meta-equiv='refresh' content='0; url=
http://mypage.html'></head><body</body></html>");
of course it works but it replaces my current page on the
browser. I want it on a separate popup screen without
browser's toolbar and menu (like an applet popup).

Try adding target="_new" to the original A HREF for the script reference (assuming it's clickable).  This will open a new browser instance when the script URL is run.

No, Adding the target tag does work. In fact, it hangs
the browser indefinitely.

Try outputting a mime redirect header that references a static page, as in:

Location: http://xxxxxxx
(extra carrage return)

I think the only solution to your problem would involve JavaScript:

==
<html>
<head><title>This page will stay</title></head>

<body OnLoad="window.open('/path/to/other/page.html','','resizable=yes,width=480,height=360,scrollbars=yes'); return false">

</body></html>
==

have fun,

or just "window.open('/path/to/other/page.html'); return false"
