Write your html page, with the flash call in a seperate html file - Then
perform a window.open on that seperate file...

If you try anything else, then you'll get mixed results since the client
will attempt to open the default application to display the file - the
user is also likely to be prompted if they want to do this which could
lead to your users getting concerned about security and therefore deny
the application opening and displaying your flash popup.

You don't have to design a single html file to call each flash file, you
could create an html file that receives parameters, like the path/flash
file name as part of the address in the url... Thus something like

http://www.someservre.com/flash-popu...?flashfile.swf

However you might have problems if your flash files are different sizes...
