Asp database generated content links all open new window by default

    Hi,

    My Asp database generated pages' content links all open a new window
    containing the same page by default; this is strange since the default
    behavior for anchor links is to open in the same window; I can and
    have corrected this with target="_self" but I have additional anchor
    links that call JavaScript to submit a form and these aren't stopped
    from opening the new window by the "_self" value. Interestingly, once
    the new window is open with the original page within, the links all
    work as expected in that window(!?!); is there a window or DOM value I
    need to instantiate so the generated windows will "recognize"
    themselves? Thanks for any help on this!

  2. This isn't really ASP related. Is it possible you have a <BASE TARGET> tag
    in the page?
