a more straight example.

<html>
<head>
<script>
  function openwindow(url){      
    if(confirm('This will send an email confirmation. Press ok if yes, otherwise cancel....')){
      window.open(url,'_blank','width=300,height=50,scrollbars=0,menubar=0');
      }
  }
</script>
</head>
<body>
<A href="#" onclick="if(confirm('This will send an email confirmation. Press ok if yes, otherwise cancel....')){window.open('mail_reg_confimation.cfm?MeetingID=#URL.reg#&UserID=#MeetingRegUserID#','_blank','width=300,height=50,scrollbars=0,menubar=0');}" >Send Email Confirmation</A>

<A href="#" onclick="openwindow('mail_reg_confimation.cfm?MeetingID=#URL.reg#&UserID=#MeetingRegUserID#');return false;" >Send Email Confirmation</A>

</body>
</html>

i would prefer using the function as it is more readable.
