Thanks to everyone who helped me through the decision process about 
opening new windows, based on the feedback I received here I have 
decided not to use the open new window function on the site.

I have a new, unrelated question:

I have been checking out a site at CAST
http://bobby.cast.org/bobby/html/en/

I have a search form provided as cut and paste from Atomz - which 
does not meet muster.

I searched the net for an example using the Atomz search form that 
would be approved.  Ironically, it is used on this site 
http://www.yourhtmlsource.com/accessibility/contentaccessibility.html 
and Bobby displays the same error messages as I have been getting. 
So, I couldn't use that as a guideline.

The example that Bobby gives for this error leaves me confused as to 
how to resolve the problem?  How can I add a label to the form below 
to satisfy the label element requirement and without changing the 
function of the form and affecting its interaction with the Atomz 
search process?

Explicitly associate form controls and their labels with the LABEL 
element. (1 instance)
<form method="get" action="http://searchservicexx.com">
<p>
<input size=15 name="squiggy" accesskey="s" value="keyword">
<br>
<input type=submit value="Search" name="submit22">
<input type=hidden name="squiggy" value="sq398583">
</p>
</form>

Thanks
Donna
