The link above is for a POP UP window that has contact info and form. WHERE is the correct place to put the NOFOLLOW code? To clarify, I mean the rel="nofollow" attribute. I do not want search engines to crawl to this link.

Hello,

The correct place to put the rel="nofollow" is inside the <a> tag:

<a href="javascript:emailwin=window.open('http://www.mywebsite.com?accountid=102262','Email','width=700,height=489,toolbar=no,statusbar=no,location=no');emailwin.focus();"><img src="../images/agent_contactinfo.gif" alt="Contact Info" width="109" height="21" border="0" rel="nofollow" /></a>

What about in a situation like above where there is NO IMG? Is the location where I put rel="nofollow" correct?

Oops! my example is wrong.

rel="nofollow" always goes in the <a> tag, never in an img tag

<a rel="nofollow" href="javascript:emailwin=window.open('http://www.mywebsite.com?accountid=102262','Email','width=700,height=489,toolbar=no,statusbar=no,location=no');emailwin.focus();"><img src="../images/agent_contactinfo.gif" alt="Contact Info" width="109" height="21" border="0" /></a>
