Can ASP detect window name?

It appears that a child window has the same session ID as the parent. Can the name given to the child window when it is created be detected by the ASP script?

This is an intranet app with a login page. I let the user view Help documents by using window.open() and I'm trying to limit the child window to the Help documents only. I'm controlling this now by removing the browser address field (location=no) but it just occured to me that detecting the name of the child window in the server-side script would allow me to limit its access.

I suspect this can't be done but thought I'd ask.

With JavaScript you can get the name.
