Re: window size
Message ID:
CGI is server side, what you are trying to accomplish is client side, so 
Javascript or a similar client side script must be used. Probably the 
best answer is not to do it, in general users dislike it anyways, if it 
is for a specific app for a specific set of users than you should be 
able to set what browsers are supported, and even browsers that block 
automatic pop-up windows will allow a user to launch a new window if it 
is part of the link.
