Or like this:

<script language="javascript">
   function goDownload(filename) {
      window.open('dl.html?'+filename,'_blank');
}
</script>
<a href="your_file.zip" onClick="goDownload(this.href);return false;">Download</a>

where dl.html has

<body onLoad="window.location=window.location.search.substring(1); setTimeout('window.close()',2000)">

You can use the methods as mentioned by Michel, or you can do this (which is what I think you were trying to do in the first place):

<a href=javascrip:void(0);" onClick="goDownload();">Download</a>

1. it is javascript:void(0) and that is JS1.1 only
2. The reason the gif died was the window.location changes
