Feedback on:
The JavaScript Pop-up Window Primer

Very worth reading

I have created a javascript pop-up to display a "HowTo" file. I used the commmand onLoad="parent.close()" to close the parent browser window so that only the pop-up is displayed on the desktop. The problem is that a Microsoft Internet Explorer pop-up dialog opens as follows:

The web page you are viewing is trying to
close the window.

Do you want to close this window?
Yes button No button

Are there any arguments to the onLoad=parent.close() command or some way to get rid of the dialog. I just want my pop-up with no parent browser.
