onclick open in new window

Hi,  first, please be patient-I am trying to revise an already-in-place menu, and I have no knowledge of javascript. I'll try to make this as clear as I can. Thanks. :)

 On a drop down menu, I want a link to open in a new browser window. In HTML, I would say:
<a href="www.link.com" target="new">

In the javascript, it says:
mm_menu_1208151244_0.addMenuItem("Corporate&nbsp;Brochure", "location='www.link.com' ");

 I cannot add  target="new" to this. How  can I go about making the imaginary www.link.com open in a new browser window? Thanks,

Maybe you can add the javascript line directly to your addMenuItem() function call.

i.e. something like this:

mm_menu_1208151244_0.addMenuItem("Corporate&nbsp;Brochure", "var newWin=window.open('www.link.com','newWin','menubar=yes,location=yes,toolbar=yes') ");
