    PHP code help

    I need to set the hyperlink in the following code to open in a new window, any advice?

    $b8 = "Permit" ; $l8 = "http://www.mcfederation.com/FORMS/PERMITAPPLICATIONFORM.aspx"; $w8 = 91;

    You can't use PHP header to open URL in new window.
    This is something that happens "client side", not "server side".

    I have a question though ...

    You're opening the new window from where?

    If you're on a page and execute a PHP script, the server will overwrite your current page.

    Or maybe you mean opening the URL in a new window with a link?
    Is that what you mean?

    A link like this?
    PHP Code:
    <?php

    $b8 
    "Permit" $l8 "http://www.mcfederation.com/FORMS/PERMITAPPLICATIONFORM.aspx"$w8 91;

    echo 
    "<a href='$l8' target='_blank'>Open Page in new window</a>";

    ?>

    If it's not opening a new window with an HTML link, you'll need to use javascripting or AJAX.
