Easy Easy

Here's a good tutorial:

http://www.zdnet.com/devhead/stories/articles/0,4413,2139716,00.html

Here's the sample from that page:

<FORM><input type="button" Value="Open Sesame!"
ONCLICK="window.open('http://www.zdnet.com/devhead/static/javascript/
windowsize/buttonwindow.html', 'groovywindow',
'toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,
menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=no,copyhistory=no,
width=100,height=350')"></FORM>

Here's the code from that page you want with a direct hyperlink

<A HREF="index.html"
ONCLICK="window.open('iamwindowhearmeroar.html',
'popup', 'toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,
status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,
copyhistory=no,width=300,height=150')">Click me.</A>

Yup!  Use this javascript function;

<script language="javascript">
if (window.screen) {
    var aw = screen.availWidth;
    var ah = screen.availHeight;
     aw = aw - 10;
     ah = ah - 25;
    }

var  mypopup=null
function popup(URL) {
     
     if ( mypopup && !mypopup.closed )
          { mypeopleup.close();
          }
mypopup = window.open(URL,"phone", 'scrollbars=1,menubar=0,resizable=1,background=white,toolbar=0,status=0,top=0,left=0,screenX=0,screenY=0,height=' + ah + ',width=' + aw);
}
</script>


It gets called like this;

<a href="javascript:popup('page.asp')">Click</a>
