Hello all,

I have some html code that I need to open in a child window.

This is easy to accomplish if I am calling this html code through other html.

Example:
<script type="text/javascript">    
window.open("page_to_open_in_child_window.html","","location=0,toolbar=0,status=0,resizable=1,width=800,height=600");</script>
<body>

But in my situation, I have no access or control over what is calling my "page_to_open_in_child_window.htm". I have tried renaming this file and using the above code in a redirector and it worked... except unfortunately (this is an LMS), using the redirector idea causes the LMS session data to not be retained.

Question is, can I embed the same instructions inside of my "page_to_open_in_child_window.htm"? Can this be done through HTML and/or javascript and/or CSS?

Thanks
