I am a newbie to Javascript -- next on my list of things to learn!

I am wondering, though, whether it is possible to use javascript to open a window that has minimal "window" features (the less the better -- I don't even want the title bar or windows borders!). I see that I could do most of what I want with window.open, but my HTML file will be called from a menu item within an application rather than from a link within an html document, so I have no where to include the window.open code. Am I making sense? :confused:

Basically, what I want to happen is when the html file is opened directly (not from a link), something along the lines of a typical "splash screen" will appear. This screen will have links on it, as well as a close button.

Maybe a little off topic, but if Javascript won't do this, does anyone know of something that might?

Thanks for any help.

I -think- what you're looking for is a chromeless-mode browser.

More information here: http://chromeless.org
Some of the code there has become obselete though.

Good luck,
