I am looking for a way to open a new window without a toolbar and then close that window with the click of a hyperlink.  All without JavaScript.  Any Ideas?

no way

you can open a window like that:
<A HREF="file.html" TARGET="_blank">

but i see no way to close the window w/o javascript.

could you tell us y u don't wanna use javascript, we might find an answer much more easier.


i hope this helps

You cannot open a window, without a toolbar, with plain HTML. The TARGET="_blank" will produce a full window, toolbars and all.

Closing a window without JavaScript can only be done two ways: clicking on the "x" in the corner or by holding down alt-f4 (windows). Since closing a window is an event-based operation, it takes a scripting language to trigger the event.

Hope that helps.

Yeah, why no javascript?  It's been supported since NN 2.0 and IE 3.0, both which came out about 10 years ago!  Few people turn it off anymore either...  The only problem might be with the small percentage that use text based free connections, and non-NN/IE browsers.  But this is a very small percentage from what I've seen...
