Not sure this is the place to post this, but it is a deviation from the
supposed HTML behavior in Microsoft's Internet Explorer 3.x.  If this is
wrong list, please excuse me, I just joined and thought this problem may
be vexing others.  If someone is aware of correct place, please feel
free to forward....

> 	onClick="window.open('open_this_window.html', 'Popup',
> 'width=300,height=500')">
> between a <FORM> </FORM> tag, the width & height you specify is

> SOLUTION:
> If you take the link out from between the <FORM></FORM> tags, the
> width & height are as specified.  Submitted the bug to Microsoft.
> Verified in MSIE 3.02 & MSIE 3.01.
> 
> OTHER BROWSERS:
> Netscape Navigator (tested ver 3.04) had no trouble with the
> <FORM></FORM> tags.  Regardless of them, it always made the new window
> at the height & width specified.
