I want to be able to open a new window with simple html, like this: <a href="file.htm" target="_blank">click here</a> I want to then put javascript in the header of that new file that takes off attributes such as toolbars or scrollbars. This has to be possible.

Thanks.

Research the JavaScript "window.open()" method. You can do everything you've asked via the parameters for that method.

Sure can :)

example grabbed quickly from my web page.... :)

<script type="text/javascript" >
    <!--
    function launch(newURL, newName, newFeatures, orgName) {
    var remote = open(newURL, newName, newFeatures);
    if (remote.opener == null)
    remote.opener = window;
    remote.opener.name = orgName;
    return remote;
  }
    function wow() {
    myRemote = launch("[i]lots[/i].html", "myRemote", "height=380,width=480,innerHeight=580,innerWidth=500,screenX=10,left=10,screenY=20,top=20,channelmode=0,dependent=1,directories=0,fullscreen=0,location=0,menubar=0,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,status=0,toolbar=0", "wow");
    }
    function launchwin() {
    myRemote = launch("[i]blogroll[/i].html", "myRemote", "height=580,width=500,innerHeight=580,innerWidth=500,screenX=100,left=100,screenY=100,top=100,channelmode=0,dependent=1,directories=0,fullscreen=0,location=0,menubar=0,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,status=0,toolbar=0", "dx");
    }
// -->
</script>
