Javascript popup window for pictures

155 100+
I'm using a Javascript script that displays pictures in a popup window and it works fine except when there's a picture that contains parentheses:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <a href="javascript:popImage('http://www.mysite.com/gallery/pic1(small).jpg','Pictures')">
  2. <img src='http://www.mysite.com/gallery/thumbs/pic1(small).jpg' width='100' height='75' alt='Picture' >
  3. </a>
Notice the parentheses around the word "small" in the image name? I'm not a Javascript guy, so I guessing that this is what is causing the problem. What is happening is - when I click on the link I get the little image icon of a broken link in the popup window instead of the larger picture.

The popup works fine for pictures that do not contain parentheses in the image name.

Is there a work around for this?
