Not sure why you would need to create a framed window within a new web page, which is essentially what a pop up window is.

I would push all the code you used in JavaScript in a new web page for the pop up.

<title>Something Different</title>
<frameset rows='100%'>
<frame src='http://www.skidmore.edu/~hfoley/sounds/PR3s.wav'>

and still use the same code to call the web page.

function PopUp_1() {
window.open( "newpage.html" )

I've never heard of a case where JavaScript can dynamically create a new web page other than the session you are on, so that method would not be feasible. I could be wrong.

However, on the new page, you could pass a variable to the popup window (the page title for example) and then use DOM to manipulate the Title's Attribute.

weird, this was working last night but now its not

var objTimer1, newOpenWindow1;
var features = 'width=400,height=250,toolbar=0,location=0,status=1,menuBar=0,scrollBars=0,resizable=0';

function PopUp_1(){
var myWindowName = 'name - 1';
var whichPage = 'someContent.html';
newOpenWindow1 = window.open(whichPage,myWindowName,features);
objTimer1 = window.setInterval("docFunc1('name - 1')", 10);
function docFunc1(newTitle1){
if (newOpenWindow1.document.readyState == 'complete'){
<input type=button value="open window" onclick="PopUp_1()"></input>
