FAQ Topic - How do I POST a form to a new window?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

You use the target attribute on the form, opening a window with
that name and your feature string in the onsubmit handler of the
FORM.

<form ... target="wndname" onsubmit="window.open('',this.target,'features');return true;">

Just:

<form target = '_blank'>

will do fine. Look mam, no js!

Evertjan. a crit :

Without JS, anyway, that code will open another window than main one.

Giving a name to the target, on first call it will open a new window and
on next call(s) will load file(s) in this same new window (unlovely the
old new window passed behind the main one may cause user to meet some
difficulties to realize something happened somewhere)

But that was not the subject of this FAQ-entry Q.

So the primary JS solution was wrong too.

Eh? Is this a cross browser issue?

Realizing that something happened somewhere is always a difficult task.

That something happened somewhere is a scientific certainty however
and a lovely certainty to the inquisitive mind at that.

no, only only (extended ?) subject of its answer :
   -  <form ... target="wndname"
   -  windox.open('','wndname','');

Why ?
With that code, with/without JS, a blank window will really open (if the
user accepts popups), by extension the blank window can be a tab.

If you want to recall, you have to come back on the mother window (the
daughter, if not closed, moves in back and is not more seen).
When you recall (re submit) result comes in yet existing daughter which
stays behind, user will have to give back focus to her. Will he do it ?
