    New Windows and visited links

    I am extremely new to Javascript and now very little about it. On the page I am working on, I want to open pdf files in a new window instead of a frame. However, it doesn't show the link as visited until the original page is refreshed.

    Click <a href ="filename.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href,'newwin'); return false"> here</a> is the javascript code that I am using to open the new window.

    The Current code is:

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Lake Huron Learning Collaborative Inc. - LHLC</title>
    <meta name="description"
    content="The Lake Huron Learning Collaborative is a community-based non-profit organization dedicated to life-long learning and enhanced post-secondary educational choices along the Lake Huron Shoreline.">
    <meta name="keywords"
    content="Lake Huron Learning, Lake Huron Learning Collaborative, Huron County, Bruce County, Huron, Bruce, life-long learning, enhanced post-secondary, educational choices, University of Western, Western, UofW, Lake Huron Shoreline.">
    <meta name="AUTHOR" content="DataQuest Consulting">

    <style rolloverstyle="">A:hover {color: #0099CC; font-family: Tahoma; text-decoration: underline} a {text-decoration:none}
    </style>
    <style>
    BODY {
    scrollbar-face-color: #336789;
    scrollbar-arrow-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-track-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-shadow-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-highlight-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-3dlight-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #FFFFFF;

    }


    </style><base
    target="I1">
    </head>
    <body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" rightmargin="0" bottommargin="0"
    style="color: rgb(0, 51, 153); background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"
    alink="#008080" link="#004ea0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"
    vlink="#3366ff">

    ******************

    I was told that I could use javascript and css to change the class before and after. How do I do this, specifically?


    The code I found, which gives an error, is:

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Example</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    a.beforeclick:link {color:#0000FF;font-size: 12pt;text-decoration:underline;font-weight:normal}
    a.beforeclick:active {color:#00FF00;font-size: 12pt;text-decoration:underline;font-weight:normal}
    a.beforeclick:visited {color:#FF0000;font-size: 12pt;text-decoration:underline;font-weight:normal}
    a.beforeclick:hover {color:#00FF00;font-size: 12pt;text-decoration:underline;font-weight:normal}

    a.afterclick:link {color:#FF0000;font-size: 12pt;text-decoration:underline;font-weight:normal}
    a.afterclick:active {color:#00FF00;font-size: 12pt;text-decoration:underline;font-weight:normal}
    a.afterclick:visited{color:#FF0000;font-size: 12pt;text-decoration:underline;font-weight:normal}
    a.afterclick:hover {color:#00FF00;font-size: 12pt;text-decoration:underline;font-weight:normal}

    </style>
    <script type="text/javascript">

    function launchPDF(PDFID){
    alert("Would launch PDF here");
    }
    </script>
    </head>

    Then in the body:

    a href="javascript:launchPDF(Report 09)"
    onclick="this.className='afterclick';" class="beforeclick">Annual
    Report 2009</a>

    ***************

    line 1, character 18 expected ")", code 0 is the error I get.

    At the VERY top of the page it says, <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 TRANSITIONAL//EN"

    This web page was designed by someone else.
    ***********************
    I assume I could still use the meta info and then the body I have:


    <style>
    BODY {
    scrollbar-face-color: #336789;
    scrollbar-arrow-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-track-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-shadow-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-highlight-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-3dlight-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #FFFFFF;

    }


    </style>
    <base
    target="I1">
    </head>
    <body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" rightmargin="0" bottommargin="0"
    style="color: rgb(0, 51, 153); background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"
    alink="#008080" link="#004ea0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"
    vlink="#3366ff">

    Try not using javascript for this.
    HTML Code:
    <a href ="filename.pdf">Here</a>
    Also, "javascript:launchPDF(Report 09)" doesn't work because Report 09 is a variable.
    If you want it to be a string, you have to put quotes around it.
    "Report 09"
    Wrong code = "javascript:launchPDF(Report 09)"
    New code = "javascript:launchPDF( 'Report 09' )"

    Also use firefox with firebug to solve your problems.
