You could put the window dimensions in the script:
function popUpWin(theURL, winName) {
	if (isNaN(window.screenX)) { // isNan handles browsers that don't have
window.screenXY values
		locX = 10;
		locY = 20;
	} else { // position the new window 10 over and 20 down from the
parent window
		locX = window.screenX +10;
		locY = window.screenY +20;
	settings='width=399,height=400,top='+ locY +',left='+ locX
function loadURL(theURL) { // load a page in the opener and close the
	window.opener.location.href = theURL;
function closePopUp() {
