Okay, I have a page where I want to have a help related link open a new window.
I can get it to open a new window but everytime I press the link it opens
a brand new window. Is there a way to make it reuse the same window. I am
currently using IE 5.0 and this has to work with Netscape as well.

I have had it work before and I see plenty of sites that have windows open
"onload" which reuse the window but for the life of me I cannot figure out
what the difference is in what I am doing.


I have tried using a function in my link and passing the filename.

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
function openHelp(helpPage)
{
open(helpPage,'HelpPage','width=350,height=300,scrollbars');
}
</SCRIPT>


Ive tried hardcoing it

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
function openHelp(helpPage)
{
window.open('http://sara/demo60-pln/help/acctbal.htm','popup','width=483,height=465,toolbar=0,scrollbars=12,resizeable=yes,status=0 ');
}
</SCRIPT>

Ive also tried using target="_new" in my link

<a href="acctbal.htm" target="_new">Help</a>

[this one actually worked a week or so ago...at least I thought it did]

Thanks in advance for any guidance you may have.


PS. Im sure this is pretty basic stuff so please forgive me
