    i know (thought i knew) that there is an html code which allows a link to be opened in a new window. i though it was just a basic href but the target text (i.e. www.apple.com in href=www.apple.com) was different (like href=:*:&^#www.apple.com or whatever). i maybe wrong but how do i do this? i don't need a java script do i?

    also,
    is there a way to make the link open in a window behind the current window (like in omniweb)?

    Here's the code for opening a link in a new window:

    <a href="http://www.site_to_link_to.com" target="_blank">Link text</a>

    To have it pop behind, you'll have to use javascript...and I can't help you there.
