I'm not sure what's wrong with this, it's driving me batty:

<a href="javascript:" onclick="window.open('/controls/eBookPolicy.aspx','eBook Policy','toolbar=no,height=300,width=400,location=no,address=no,directories=no,status=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,menubar=no,copyhistory=false');" runat="server"><b>HERE</b></a>

Javascript error: Invalid argument
Code 0

<a href="#" onclick="window.open('/controls/eBookPolicy.aspx','eBook Policy','toolbar=no,height=300,width=400,location=no,address=no,directories=no,status=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,menubar=no,copyhistory=false');" runat="server"><b>HERE</b></a>

Is perhaps better, javascript: void(0) may work but it does have some problems.

you know what also I didn't know.  You cannot have a space in the title, or else not all the attributes will work such as location=0, etc.
