Ensure to cancel the anchor tag's normal behavior by using event.preventDefault() or by simply adding highlighted:

onclick="NewWindow(this.href,'name','400','400','yes');return false"

Hope that helps.

I already have the "return false" code. I have added a complete link that I am using, please let me know if you can spot an error. Many thanks.

It works fine on my end. Tested across IE, FF, Safari, Opera and Chrome.

Ensure you have JS enabled at your end.

Hi, thanks for your time. The code works on my computer, but my wifes computer next to me it does not. You mentioned JS, sorry could you explain what that is.
