Is there a way I can hide the topbar
contains(http:../../test1.asp and minimize button and

I don't think that you can hide the title bar using You can try setting "titlebar" attribute to no.
but this attribute is ignored unless its an HTMLapplication(HTA) or a dialog box.

showModelessDialog canbe your best bet.

There is a trick to get a window without everything. Open a window in full-screen mode, then resize it and move it.

Thank you for your suggestion.  I tried to use showModelessDialog, but still shows "Web Page Dialog" on the title.  Is possible I can hide the title?

use the following function

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="javascript">
<!-- Hide this script from JavaScript impaired browsers
 function doit(htmfile) {
     popUpWin =,'smallWin','height=350,width=300,toolbar=0,location=0, directories=0,status=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=no,resizable=0,titlebar=no')
     if (navigator.appName == 'Netscape') {
// Stop hiding now. All is clear !! -->

now to open a new window call this function and pass the file name which you want to open

it will solve your problem
