Closing a Secondary window ?

Hi :

Below is the 'features' clause which I use to open a secondary window. I do this successfully with no problem. I can also cl;ose this window from the Main window with a *main window* button

*However*, I have a button in the *secondary* window which allows the user to close this secondary window via 'clicking' it. The button is also defined below.

Problem: I can no longer 'click' the secondary window button and get the secondary window to Close ! Since I was able to do so yesterday, I *must* have done something 'nutty' with the features clause.

Can anyone help please ?

Thank you.

** a button in the secondary window **
<input type="button" onclick="window.close();" value="Close This FAQ Window" />

** The 'features clause' in Main Window **
'menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,status=yes,left=680,top=240,height=280,width=290,alwaysRaised=yes,dependent=yes,titlebar=no,location=no,toolbar=no') ;

I've solved this -- and it was *not* a 'features' problem.

It involves the URL which I had changed from:




Apparently, changing to the 'generic' URL address from the specific one with Port allocation caused my problem.

Hmmmm ....

I forgot, and used real URLs in stead of 'example' ones.

I apologize :((
