Posting form results to new and separate page

P: n/a
Hi All

I know I may sound like an IE waif, but I am trying to get my web sites to
be more compatible especially with browsers such as Netscape, Safari,
Mozilla, etc.

In a nutshell, could somebody please post me an example of how I can force a
form submit to post form data to a new/separate window rather than the
original window it is in. The added difficulty with this is that with same
submit I need to open this new window first, point it to a specific URL page
and then populate this page with the form data.

In IE I can do this without a problem, but in Safari and the like the form
data somehow gets lost and doesn't hit the new page.

Your help would really be appreciated.

Rgds

Robbie

You sounded like an 'IE waif' on the post
you cross-posted ro c.i.w.a./c.i.w.a.s.,
now you just sound monotonous. :-(

Clarify that:
What's the point of specifying the new URL if you're going to immediately
replace it with the results of posting your form?

Regardless, see FAQ entry 4.37:
