Hi missywpitt,

First off, what is a "fever"?  

Second, as far as I can tell, those links are working exactly the way you coded them.  They are using target="_blank" to open the image in a new window, not any form of javascript.

Okay, they are 3rd party extensions.  That's fine.

The second part of my answer still stands:  the links on your page are not using javascript to open the images.  They are just plain old <a> tags that open a new blank window and that window dispays the image.

So I'm still unclear what your question or problem is.

Hi missywpitt

I'm  with jason1178 on the unclear bit. What you are doing is straight forward but you seem to be complicating it a bit.

Furthermore... just a note and totally unrelated to your question, but your images are hugh more than 100K some even small ones!

This is excessive.. for example the Experts-echange logo top left is 300px by 75, larger than your pics but it is only 49bytes!

Sorry, I was able to resolve my issue shortly after I posted the question... I had two links attached to the text.
thanks for your comments I am working on the size issue of the images.
