Hmmm, you're right, I'm wrong ... it does not work in Nav 4.76 Mac 
either, the edition of my JavaScript book was from the time of Nav 
4.04 and I don't see any notes that would indicate it's not supported 
everywhere from Nav 2 and IE 3 on up, but I've never actually used it 
- me and my big mouth ...

However it DOES work in IE 5 Mac - maybe try this:

var theWindow = null;
function myWindow(theURL) {
	theWindow =,'','status,resizable,copyhistory,menubar,location,toolbar,scrollbars,directories');
