In Site Search Engine Problem



If anyone could help with the following I would be grateful:

I am using an in-site search engine within a website I am building.
The search results are displayed in a pop-up window - with links
showing to the corresponding pages.

My problems is that I want the links are opening the pages in the
small pop-up, when I want them to open in the parent window.

Below is the script that I am using:

<!-- The JavaScript Source!! -->

<!-- Begin
var item = new Array();

/* Here is where all the magic happens.
Just enter as many additional pages that
that you want to search, then fill in the
additional listings for each page.

// "Page Name","path","Page Title","Many,Key,Words","Descriptive

c=0; item[c]=new Array("index.html","","DemoSite","index,main,start,home,front","Demonstration
search engine data about an imagined but probable internet site.");
c++; item[c]=new Array("about.htm","","About
Me","about,author,contact,email,who","Contact details and general
information about the creator of the site and what the site is
c++; item[c]=new Array("links.htm","","Links
page","links,more,where,similar,friends","Links to my favourite sites
which I find interesting. Other friends sites which have similar
interests to my own.");
c++; item[c]=new Array("main.htm","main/","Main
Page","content,main,focus","The main part of my site which contains
what you have come to see. Lots of stuff like that and more great
things. All in a sub directory.");
c++; item[c]=new Array("logo.jpg","main/images/","Link
Logo","link,image,logo,graphic","The logo.jpg is just a small image
which you can place on your site as a link to me. It's in a second
level subdirectory.");

page="<html><head><title>Search Results</title></head><body
bgcolor='white'><center><table border=0 cellspacing=10 width=80%>";

function search(frm) {
win ="","","scrollbars");
txt = frm.srchval.value.split(" ");
fnd = new Array(); total=0;
for (i = 0; i < item.length; i++) {
fnd = 0; order = new Array(0, 4, 2, 3);
for (j = 0; j < order.length; j++)
for (k = 0; k < txt.length; k++)
if (item[order[j]].toLowerCase().indexOf(txt[k]) > -1 && txt[k] !=
fnd += (j+1);
for (i = 0; i < fnd.length; i++) {
n = 0; w = -1;
for (j = 0;j < fnd.length; j++)
if (fnd[j] > n) { n = fnd[j]; w = j; };
if (w > -1) total += show(w, win, n);
fnd[w] = 0;
win.document.write("</table><br>Total found:
function show(which,wind,num) {
link = item[which][1] + item[which][0];
line = "<tr><td><a href='"+link+"'>"+item[which][2]+"</a> Score:
line += item[which][4] + "<br>"+link+"</td></tr>";
return 1;
// End -->

<!-- STEP TWO: Copy this code into the BODY of your HTML document -->
