    Unhappy Can't popup in new window instead of tab.

    I'm trying to make it so that a clicked link will open a Flash movie
    into its own set size window. But in IE8 (and IE8 emulating IE7) it
    only opens up in a new tab, with the movie filling the entire window's
    size!
    Here's the link I'm trying:
    Code:
    <Script Language="JavaScript"> 
    function load() { 
    var load = window.open('http://www.mydomain.com/flash/ 
    twitter_tutorial.swf','','scrollbars=no,menubar=no,fullscreen=0,height=400,width=550,resizable=no,toolbar=no,location=no,status=no,zoominherit=0 '); 
    } 
    
    // --> 
    </Script> 
    Open Flash tutorial in a separate window by <a href="javascript:load 
    ()">clicking here</a>.
    It works fine in Firefox and Google Chrome. But obviously, I need it
    to work in IE!
    Any advice?
    Thanks!

    try using _blank for the window name instead of no name at all.

    Yeah, tried that--still just opens in a new tab and fills the page vs. a new defined size window.

    Hmm, drat. Was hoping this wouldn't be that difficult of an issue. Maybe it's just not possible with IE7 & 8? That would suck for many reasons.
