Calling new HTML page from an applet

All,
     I have the following code:
class Bookmark{
   String name;
   URL url;
   Bookmark(String name, String theURL){
      this.name = name;
      try { this.url = new URL(theURL);}
     
            System.out.println("Bad URL: " + theURL);
      }
   }
}
This code will bring up a new url on a given condition.  This works great! Sort of....
This will bring up the url in my current browser, I want it to bring up the url in a
seperate browser.  Can anybody tell me how to do this?

Thanx!

try using the target parameter "_blank" of
the showDocument method in the applet context:

AppletContext myContect = getAppletContext();
myContect.showDocument(url, "_blank" );
