Send args using window.open()

Hi Experts,

I want to do this window.open('myPage.aspx?arg1=abc') but it does not work if I send the page only it will open but when I send a arg it does not. How do I send the arg.

You must have something else going on.  I made up this simple demo pages and they work fine with args attached.
