IE5 settings

I run this code on my home computer and it works fine:


<HTML>
<HEAD>

<SCRIPT Language="JavaScript">

function MyWindow() {

contents=
'<title>Changing password</title>'+
'<body bgcolor="#5B,00,00">'+

 '<form method="POST" action="../filingsystem.exe/pass">'+
   '<p><font color="#000080"><input type="text" name="edpassword" size="20">'+
 ' </font><b><font size="3" color="#E6E600">:Old Password: </font></b></p>'+
 ' <p><font color="#E6E600"><input type="text" name="ednewpass" size="20">'+
 ' <b><font size="3" >Password:  '+
 ' CaIIiIE</font></b></font></p>'+
  '<p><font color="#E6E600"><input type="text" name="ednewpass" size="20">'+
  '<b><font size="3">:Confirm  '+
 ' CaIIiIE</font></b></font></p>'+
 ' <p><input type="submit" value="Submit" name="B1"></p>'+
'</form>'+

'</body>';

options = "toolbar=0,status=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=0," +
 
 "resizable=0,width=400,height=200";
 
newwindow=new window.open("","mywindow", options);
newwindow.document.write(contents);

}
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<BODY>

<FORM NAME="form1">

<INPUT TYPE=Button VALUE="Change password" onClick="MyWindow()">
</FORM>

</BODY>
</HTML>
