Popup window with a button

Greetings,

I have an html fragment which creates a link which pops up a window and runs a script in it:

<a href="choose.php"
            onClick="return popup(this, 'IndustryChoose',
                                 '?CallerWin=$winName&Type=Industry&Field=Industry',
                                 'width=250,height=250,scrollbars=no,resizable=yes,toolbar=no,titlebar=no,menubar=no')">
   Add
</a>


Instead of a link, I would like to use a button. I can use <button> to do this of course but I can't think of how to tell the popup to run choose.php, as I did with the <a> tag.

Thanks,

Rich

Links want to be links - but you can style your link to look like a button.

Yeah, you're right. I was missing the piece of the puzzle of changing the first parameter to window.open, 'this', to the name of my target script, 'choose.php'. GwynforWeb's answer clarified this for me but nonetheless your answer was right and the first across the line. Thanks folks.
