    Hi all, is there a good way to have a popup window appear using Javascript
    and the html "map" tag? Here is my code:

    <map name="navigation">
    <area shape="rect" coords="5,57,45,70" href="index.php" alt="Home">

    I would like to have this link be a Javascript "onclick" type popup function
    with no scrollbar, etc.

    Not the best solution in the world by any means, but it should work for most

    <area shape="rect" coords="5,57,45,70" href="
    400,toolbar=no,scrollbar=no,resizable=yes'" alt="Home">

    Note that people who use tabbed browsers and prefer to middle-click to open
    links in tabs will hate you. ;)

    I'm not sure if the area element supports onClick, but this would be a better
    solution if it does: (I'm too lazy right now to go look; I just woke up

    <area shape="rect" coords="5,57,45,70" href="index.php" onClick="
    400,toolbar=no,scrollbar=no,resizable=yes';return false;" alt="Home">

    That way, clicking on the link would open in a new window for left-clicks,
    but people middle-clicking or right-clicking or people without script enabled
    could still use it as they desired.
