I am looking for the html code (and basic instructions) that will pop a url into a new, quarter page browser window. I know that  <target =" _blank"> pops up a new window, but what about a new, quarter page window?

Here's the function I use

<script>
function openAWindow( pageToLoad, winName, width, height, center)

{
/* Opens a new window on the users desktop.   Arguments:
    pageToLoad - The URL of a page to load in the browser window.
                 This can be a relative URL or fully qualified.
    winName -        Name of the new window.
    width -        The horizontal size of the new window.
    height -        The vertical size of the new window.
    center -     toggle centering on 4.0 browsers.
                  1=centered window 0=no centering
    Values in the "args" section below can all be toggled in the
    same fashion as the center toggle.  Just modify the appropriate
    value in the args section to be either 0 or 1.
    A call to this function might look like this:

   xposition=0; yposition=0;
    if ((parseInt(navigator.appVersion) >= 4 ) && (center)){
        xposition = (screen.width - width) / 2;
        yposition = (screen.height - height) / 2;    }
    args = "width=" + width + ","     + "height=" + height + ","
    + "location=0,"     + "menubar=0,"    + "resizable=1,"    + "scrollbars=0,"
    + "status=0,"     + "titlebar=0,"    + "toolbar=0,"    + "hotkeys=0,"
    + "screenx=" + xposition + ","  //NN Only
    + "screeny=" + yposition + ","  //NN Only
    + "left=" + xposition + ","     //IE Only
    + "top=" + yposition;           //IE Only
    window.open( pageToLoad,winName,args );
    }</script>


To call the page use this anchor tag

 <a href="javascript:openAWindow('newwindow.html','editvalues',310,120,1)">
(this would open a quarter size screen on a 640x480 screen
I need to look up the function that determines the size of the user's screen
then you can make it exactly one quarter of their screen size)

Hope this gets you started

window.screen.availWidth
window.screen.availHeight

these work both with IE and Netscpae (for netscape only you can use window.innerWidth)

Even better
---------------- 8< ---------- 8< -------------
<html>
<head>
<title>Example</title>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function openWindow(sAddr, iDivX, iDivY) {
    iSwidth  = screen.width
    iSheight = screen.height
    iWwidth  = iSwidth  / iDivX
    iWheight = iSheight / iDivY
    iLeft   = (iSwidth  - iWwidth)  / 2
    iTop    = (iSheight - iWheight) / 2
    msgWindow = window.open(sAddr,'newWin','width=' + iWwidth + ',height=' + iWheight + ',screenX=' + iLeft + ',screenY=' + iTop + ',top=' + iTop + ',left=' + iLeft);
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<body>
 <form>
  <input type="button" onClick="openWindow('newpahe.htm',3,3)" value="Click Me">
 </form>
</body>
</html>
---------------- 8< ---------- 8< -------------

As you can see you onlye need to change the values when calling the function "openWindow"
1st  value is the URL
2nd  value is the Axis X proportion
3thd value is the Axis Y proportion

Write this code between the </Title> and <head> tag

<script language="JavaScript">
<!-- hide from JavaScript-challenged browsers
function openWindow(url) {
popupWin = window.open(url,
'remote','menubar=no,toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,dependent,width=400,height=200,left=50,top=50')}
// done hiding --></script>

In the body tag wgere you want to give the link for popup give this code

<a href="javascript:openWindow('xyz.htm');">popup</a>

As you can see you can set a lot of parameters as either true or false.

Hope this solves your problem in the easiest way.
