I'm marking this one as 'Invalid'. The key to the reporter's HTML is the target attribute in the anchor tag: target="main" In order for this to work as intended (that is, open the link in the parent window rather than a new window), the parent window should have a name attribute equal to "main". I have been able to do this without any problem with a Mozilla debug build on WinNT, made on 06/01/00. You launch a parent window as follows: window.open(parentwindow.html','main',config='height=300, etc., etc. ) This produces a window with name attribute equal to "main". From now on, the rest of the reporter's HTML works fine. A "nextpage" window comes up launched from the main window. This contains the anchor tag: <a href="thanksalot.html"target="main">Click here</a> When you click on this, the "thanksalot.html" file comes up in the parent window named "main". It does not come up in yet a new window. The trick is to make sure that the parent window does indeed have the name "main" as an attribute... As far as I know, "main" is not a reserved word, and must be actively assigned to the parent window. Without assigining this, you won't get back to the parent window from the anchor tag - either in Mozilla, Netscape 4.x, or IE4.
