Is it possible to open a pop-up window from within a pop-up window?

Hi, I have an html file with this script:
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function popitup(url) {
	if (window.focus) {newwindow.focus()}
	return false;
// -->

Open in new window

that is executed with the URL like this:
<a href="#" onClick="return popitup('http://www.mypage.com')">Click Here!</a>

Open in new window

When I put the same code in the html file of the window that is popped up I can only get it to display in the same popped up window, or a new one.  

How can get a link in the popped up window to open another pop-up?
