what is the equivalent of the JavaScript window.open("new_window.html") in jQuery?

I am trying to convert JavaScript code into jQuery (for learning purposes) but I can't seem to find anything about it.

Thanks for your help guys. I am just a beginner so this is a little overwhelming for me, but I have been doing my own searching.
I found this website and it has a simple implementation: http://yensdesign.com/tutorials/popupjquery/

I looked at your suggestions and they are amazing. If I have time I'll try them out as well. Thanks!

If your using jQuery, you might want to check out a plugin called PopUpWindow I wrote that makes writing popupwindows very easy. It even supports profiles. Check it out and any comments or suggestions are welcomed.

Ok, that doesn't really help. I am new to all this and I'm having trouble understanding what is going on.

first thing is that jQuery is not different from javascript. It is a framework for javascript. means it just provide some easy ways for some regularly used functions and wrapper functions for javascript native functions.
Basically used for unobtrusive HTML and Javascript.

See the code below for ur purpose solving
//Suppose u have links in your page which pop-up windows to other sites like
(HTML Code)
<a href="new_window.html" rel="pop-up">new_window</a>
//notice here rel="pop-up". That is the key.
//javascript code
$(document).ready( function() {
    $('a[rel="pop-up"]').click( function() {
        window.open( $(this).attr('href') );
        return false;

Open in new window

Thanks. I understand that part. But now how do I make the popup look nice? I want it to be centered, fade in slowly and be a certain width and height.

<!-- Begin
function popUp(URL) {
day = new Date();
id = day.getTime();
eval("page" + id + " = window.open(URL, '" + id + "', 'toolbar=0,scrollbars=0,location=0,statusbar=0,menubar=1,resizable=1,width=400,height=400');");
// End -->
