opening a javascript link in php

This is what I have so far the syntax is wrong and I can't seem to get it. I want  it to open 400px by 300px.


$strOut .= ' <a id="newsExtra'.$row['ID'].'" class="extra news" href="javascript:window.open("news/readnews.php?ID='.$row['ID'].'")" title="Read the full article with complete formatting" target="_blank"">Full Article</a>'."\n";

If you open a new window via javascript there is no need to give a target. Try:

$strOut .= ' <a id="newsExtra'.$row['ID'].'" class="extra news" href="#" onclick="window.open(\'news/readnews.php?ID='.$row['ID'].'\',\'\',\'width=400,height=300\'); return false" title="Read the full article with complete formatting">Full Article</a>'."\n";
