Hi, I've asked this elsewhere but no one seems to be able to help.
But I'm pretty sure it's simple! Just that I'm really no expert. I don't even know if this is called hypercell.
I'm certain this will be a piece of cake to the gurus out there.

I'm using this particular javascript technique whereby when a cell in a table has "onmouseover" the cell changes color, and when the cell has "onmouseout" it goes to a link.

A simple sample of the script is as follows (also attached):


<html>


<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
<script type="text/javascript">
function link1(){
window.location.href="http://www.google.com/";
}
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
function link2(){
window.location.href="http://www.yahoo.com/";
}
</script>
</head>


<body>
<center>

<table border="1" width="200" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" height="100">
<tr>
<td onmouseover="this.style.background='#F1F7FA';this.style.cursor='pointer'" onmouseout="this.style.background='white';" onclick="link1()" width="50%" align="center">
<p align="center">Link to Google</td>
<td width="50%" align="center">
&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td onmouseover="this.style.background='#F1F7FA';this.style.cursor='pointer'" onmouseout="this.style.background='white';" onclick="link2()" width="50%" align="center">
Link to Yahoo!</td>
<td width="50%" align="center">
&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
</table>

</center>
</body>


</html>

This script works great. Just that:

1. How do we make the links open in a new window?
2. When we click on the cells, how do we parse the REFERRER info as well as the cookie info? I find that using this script just treats the click as a new click to the link, but I'm sure that some info can be parsed.

Thanks alot in advance to anyone who can give some advice.
