close all child windows when close the main window

>From the main page, there are lots of links to open new window.
i.e. <a href="#" onClick="window.open('child1.html')">Open Child
Window</a>

If I close the main page, I want to close all child windows also. That
means I
need to keep track all handles of the child windows whenever I open a
new
window. Correct? any suggestions on the approach?
Please advise. thanks!!

That won't work if user browses in main window.

IMO the best way is to simply add 'dependent=yes' to popup window
attributes.
Doesn't work everywhere, but when works - it works :)

BTW: never use href="#", put real address there and use return false in
onclick.
This will improve search engine visibility, ensure that windows open in new
window, links can be copied/bookmarked, etc.

Yes. Wouldn't be hard if you define a Javascript function for opening
windows and save the handles into an array.

Or you could use the ShowModelessDialog() function. Modless dialog boxes
stay in front of their parent window and automatically would close when the
parent closes.

Modeless Dialogs are also IE-only.
