Subject Re: dispatch to new window in web browser possible?
Date Mon, 06 May 2002 07:53:56 GMT
There is NO WAY you can open a new window from the server side.
Client side JavaScript (or VBscript in IE for the picky ones) is the only 
way to do this.  There are different approaches to your problem, but they 
all involve some client side coding.
