I am sure there is a simple answer to this but don't have enough knowledge to work it out.

I have setup a login page that works in an iframe. When someone successfully logs in I want the page to open in it's own window.
I have attached the code for the page in the iframe and if you want to look at where it is working the address is

any help much appreciated.

Look, PHP is server side programming language. You MUST use javascript (html) to do this:

<form method="post" action="index.php" target="_blank">

<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0"><tbody><tr><td colspan="4"><img width="1" height="14" alt="" src=""></td>
<td width="50%"><img width="1" height="10" alt="" src=""></td>
<td class="logtxt1"><label for="loginname">Username:&nbsp;</label></td>
<td><input type="text" maxlength="255" size="24" name="loginname" class="finput1" id="loginname"></td>
<td width="50%"><img width="1" height="1" alt="" src=""></td>
<td width="50%" colspan="4"><img width="1" height="3" alt="" src=""></td>
<td width="50%"><img width="1" height="1" alt="" src=""></td>
<td class="logtxt1"><label for="password">Password:&nbsp;</label></td>
<td><input type="password" maxlength="255" size="24" name="password" class="finput1" id="password"></td>
<td width="50%"><img width="1" height="1" alt="" src=""></td>
<tr><td colspan="4"><img width="1" height="4" alt="" src=""></td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="4"><img width="1" height="8" alt="" src=""></td></tr>
<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0">
<tbody><tr><td colspan="4"><img width="1" height="1" alt="" src=""></td></tr>
<td align="left">&nbsp;</td><td align="left">&nbsp;</td><td align="right"><h3 target="_blank" base=""><input type="submit" onmouseout="highlightButton('fbuttonup1')" onmouseover="highlightButton('fbuttondown1')" title="Log in to Owl Intranet" alt="Log in to Owl Intranet" value="Login" class="fbuttonup1"></h3></td>
<td><img width="1" height="1" alt="" src=""></td>
<tr><td colspan="4"><img width="1" height="1" alt="" src=""></td></tr>
<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0">
<tbody><tr><td colspan="2"><img width="8" height="1" alt="" src=""></td></tr>
<td><a href="register.php?myaction=forgot" class="loglbutton1">Forgot your password?<br></a>
