I have an html page with a form that submits information and shows the results on another page. I need this page to pop up in another window. Is this possible?

Sure.
Just use target in <form ...> tag.

<form action=your_cgi method=... target=new>

I want to be able to limit the size. Is this possible too?

Limit the size of new window?
Yes, you can use this as prototype:
<form action="your_cgi.cgi" method=post name="status" target="my_new_window" onSubmit="window.open('','my_new_window','resizable=yes,menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,width=400,height=400'); window.setTimeout('document.status.submit()',2000); return false;">

It will open a window of 400x400

The whole tag should be as single line!

Ok, I tried it and it opens up the new window, but the window remains blank. Any thoughts?

Also, it is not sending and recording the info to the perl script.

Ok, I got it to work.
I had to remove the
;window.setTimeout('document.status.submit()',2000); return false;
portion of it. Everything works great now.

Thanks

Oh, yeah, sorry I've cut-and-pasted with extra unneccessary data.
