How do I open a new normal (full sized) browser window form a small "pop-up" window?

P: n/a
Hi

Can anyone tell me how to open up a new normal, full-sized
browser window from a small popup window?
I'm using something like this.

<script language="javascript">
<!--
function OpenWin(theURL,winName,features) {
theURL = theURL + "?URL="+window.parent.location;
window.open(theURL,winName,features);
}
//-->
</script>
<a href="javascript:
OpenWin('http://www.auction-air.com/bidding_advice_no_menu.html','advice_win
','scrollbars=yes,width=600,height=550,resizable=y es,left=20,top=20')">click
text<a>

....And it creates a nice small 600x550 "pop-up" browser window.

But how do I creat a link within that pop-up window
that will fire up a normal *full-sized* browser window.

==> Any ideas?

With thanks

Consult your browser documentation. Ctrl-N works in my favorite browser.

It may work in a popup, too. But then, the complexity of new windows
from popups might indicate that popup windows are a bad idea.

Reliably? You can't. Some browser prevent the author from controlling
the user's environment.
