Hello Experts,

How can I modify

<div Width="130px" class='CategoryBox' style="CURSOR: pointer" onClick='window.location="" ' onmouseover='this.className="OverCategoryBox";' onmouseout='this.className="CategoryBox";'>Trallalla</div>

so it opens in a new window?

>>what is wrong with my answer is a method, not a property. You just overwrote the function reference with a string. It will not open a window.
