Using in a link fails when the web page is served from a subdomain. If the target filename does not contain a blank, instead of a new window being opened, the file is displayed in the original window. When the filename contains a blank, the second parameter is used as the filename instead of the first one. When the same page is accessed through a top-level domain, everything is ok.

This was tested in, 2.0.010 and 3.0ß1


- Go to
- Click on link '1533' at the top of the right frame.
- A chart will open in a new window
- Close this window
- Click on link '6' at the bottom of the right frame.
- A chart will open in a new window
- Close this window

Repeat the same procedure, this time on

- For the first link (1533) an error message is returned that files /totals is not found. This is the name of the target window from the second parameter.

Link behind '1533': javascript:void("ParalogBarChart_Date [Year]_Jumps.png","totals","width=660,height=500,toolbar=no,dependent=yes"))

- For the second link, instead of a new window opening, the chart is displayed in the right frame. 

Link behind '6': javascript:void("ParalogPieChart_Place.png","totals","width=660,height=500,toolbar=no,dependent=yes"))
