Most of this code (below) is a simple jump menu example.

When I add links with a target=_blank...[HTML]<option value="http://www.domain.com" target="_blank">Happy Holidays</option>[/HTML]...The link functions, but opens in the same window.

How do I modify this form code so all targets=_blank?

[HTML]<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<title>Jump Menu Example</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<script language="JavaScript">
function MM_jumpMenu(targ,selObj,restore){ //v3.0
if (restore) selObj.selectedIndex=0;

function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01
var p,i,x; if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) {
d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n];
for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document);
if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x;

function MM_jumpMenuGo(selName,targ,restore){ //v3.0
var selObj = MM_findObj(selName); if (selObj) MM_jumpMenu(targ,selObj,restore);

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">
<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
<select name="menu1" onChange="MM_jumpMenu('parent',this,1)">
<option value="products.htm" selected>Products</option>
<option value="services.htm">Services</option>
<option value="http://www.domain.com" target="_blank">Happy Holidays</option>
<option value="contact.htm">Contact Us</option>
<input type="button" name="Button1" value="Go" onClick="MM_jumpMenuGo('menu1','parent',1)">

Thank you :)

target is not a supported attribute of the option tag and it is not relevant.

you could change the MM_jumpMenu (or make it conditional on targ) to do something like:
window.open(selObj.options[selObj.selectedIndex].value, targ, "resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=no");

apologies for any js syntax errors...

Getting so close...

Is it possible to open in a 'normal browser window', with toolbars, refresh button, etc.

Thank you very much!
