I want to create an interactive map and have people click on parts to get a picture. I know how to have a link open in a new window, but how do I specify the size of the window? I want the map to be in the background and have the picture only be 1/4 of the browser size. thanks

in a link, that would be:

<A  href='Open'  onClick='var myWin = window.open("someURL.htm","myWin","width=400,height=300");return false;'>Open</a>

or a little simpler :
<A  href='http://www.yahoo.com' target="_blank">Open</a>

This will allow you doing that with pure HTML, no JS.

avner, but won't let you specify the size.

I can also suggest to remove all items in the new browser:
<A  href='Open'  onClick='var myWin = window.open("someURL.htm","myWin","width=400,height=300,location=no");return false;'>Open</a>

actually, what was proposed is JavaScript, not Java ... and it is widely supported.  I don't know of any way to do it using pure HTML.

you can't specify window sizes just by pure HTML... try their suggestions involving javascript.

if javascripting scares you and choose to avoid it, then you can't create new things since HTML is very limited when it comes to dynamics.

all i can say is follow their suggestions or you may choose to learn javascript yourself.

here's a good start for learning javascript:

goodluck! :)
