Thanks very much for the reply. It is disappointing... as my two sites
are both UVM sites too that are related.
I'm currently working on the application I described, it is basically a
PHP file that will open a new window with the requested page, and then
itself go back to the page it came from. The only issue I've run into so
far is that the current page takes the focus, and not the new window
that opens. I am still working on the focus issues, but hopefully will
have them resolved.
Let me know if you are interested in such a thing.
