Code below works great for opening my pdf's in a new window so that my ajax code doesnt reset the page...but...not in ie6...any ideas?
function fNewPDFWindows ()  
{  
if (!document.getElementsByTagName) return false;  
var links = document.getElementsByTagName("a");  
for (var eleLink=0; eleLink < links.length; eleLink ++) {
	if (links[eleLink].href.indexOf('.pdf') !== -1) {
		links[eleLink].onclick =
		function() {
			window.open(this.href,'resizable,scrollbars');  
			return false;
			}
			var img = document.createElement("img");
			img.setAttribute("src", "includes/new-win-icon.gif");
			img.setAttribute("alt", "(opens in a new window)");
			links[eleLink].appendChild(img);  
			}
	   	}
	}   
 
function addLoadEvent(func)
{
var oldonload = window.onload;
if (typeof window.onload != 'function') { window.onload = func; } else { window.onload = function() { oldonload(); func(); } } }
addLoadEvent(fNewPDFWindows);
