place a javascript function in your html

<script language="JavaScript">

function googleWindow ()
window.open("googleWindow.htm", "googleWindowWinName", "toolbar=no, location=no, directories=no, statusbar=no, menubar=no, scrollbars=no, resizable=no, top=0, left=0")

call it from flash

I think you dont have to use getURL for the javaScript function if he/she is using textBox to accept HTML

<A HREF="javaScript:googleWindow()">Google</A>
(Within Text Box, and the Text box has "Render as HTML" checked in the properties inspector)
