[thelist] JavaScript help

Hi all,

Begging for help again.
I'm still figuring out JavaScript (I know, I know, I'm way behind), and I've 
been asked to modify some pages that have a window that pops up with info 
about the person linked. Now, there are a bunch of people that are linked 
to, but the window doesn't come into focus the second
time you click on a name. They want the window to come into focus each time 
a name is clicked.

Someone else did the JavaScript on the page (I don't know who so I can't go 
to them for help). They used a function (script is below) to open up all the 
windows. I'm not clear on how this works or whether or not I can add (or how 
to add) a focus thingy to it. I've been scanning through Thau's JS tutorial, 
but it doesn't quite explain it.
I'd really appreciate any help as I'm a little over my head. But that's how 
we learn - right ??


PS. If you can email me off-list as I'm on the digest, that would be much 

<!-- the function -->
<script language="JavaScript">

<!--- hide script from old browsers

function MM_openBrWindow(theURL,winName,features) { //v2.0

<!-- the links -->
