Hi this is my first post here and as you can see i am VERY behind in reading this (high volume) list...

How can you use this method when submitting a form (e.g. onSubmit will open a new window as per the example below - and will still work if JS is not there...)

<form action="/polls.asp" method="post">
<input type="radio" name="poll" value="R" />R
<input type="submit" name="WFM_Submit" value="Vote" />

I have fiddled with onSubmit and a few other things and gotten some nice errors but... didn;t work it out...

check this article --

    Links & JavaScript Living Together in Harmony

the piece of code you are looking for is

   onclick="window.open(this.href, this.target); return false"
  >click here</a>

except instead of "click here" you'd have <img src=... />

to size the window to fit your image, add a third parameter called
windowFeatures, defined in

Table 1.4 Optional features to specify for a new window

so each thumbnail link might say --

   href="template.html?img=..." ...

and the template page displays the image for the name passed in the url

> is this a reasonable way of opening a new image in a  window?


assuming you link harmoniously
