Haven't tried this yet, but I have another problem like yours. I have a link
which is supposed to open a new window containing my resume. When you load
the page and click on the link, it reloads the current page (???). If you
click on it AGAIN, it does what it is
supposed to do and opens a new window with my resume. I don't know why. My
solution to the problem was to have the link instead
load another html document which opens a new window containing my resume and
then perform the history.go(-1) method.
Confused yet? Sorry. To see it, go to http://www.ids.net/~pmccarty/ and
click on the envelope image in the sidebar.
