You are sort of on the right track, almost...

The part you're missing I think is the javascript is loaded in the
head section as a general rule for this sort of thing, not through the
onload function.

Since you are only validating for 1.0, you can use this in your head
section, or just have the script part in a seperate file, it's just a
pop-up script with everything enabled.

<script type="text/javascript">
<!-- hide from older browsers
    function openWin(vUrl,vTarget)
      n = open(vUrl,vTarget,'toolbar=yes,location=yes,status=yes,menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes');
  // -->

Your link in the body section:

<a href="yourfile.html" title="a description of what the visitor will
be clicking to" onclick="openWin(this.href, this.target); return
false;">some text to click on</a>
