I'd like to know the best way to be able to click a button called print that will pop up a new window with the contents of a div on the current page to be printed.

You don't really need a new window.  Just use an @media print in the stylesheet

@media print
  {
     style rules here
  }

Then set everything you don't want to print to display:none, and apply any special style you need to the div for optimum printing.

for the button you just need onclick="window.print();"

Nevermind, I see what you mean now, it opens it into a print view anyways almost like a popup window.
