[Javascript] opening window

I tried rhh's code too (new to me) and found same thing in Netscape 4.7
In MSIE it opens a full screen window without the title bar and resize/close icons.
I thought that F11 would change it to a default size but it did not.
To close it I had to resort to Alt+F4

BTW the syntax
worked just as well, as the (what to me was) less familiar

I have the feeling that the language terms that users might apply to such a window would not be such
as John Stuart Mill would submit to his publisher.

Personally I am more interested in smaller plain windows of this ilk
