    Unhappy Open new window with window.open

    I am wanting to create a link that opens a popup window using window.open

    The code I am using on the link is:
    <a href="javascript:window.open('http://www.truegoldbuyers.com/wwb.html','WHATWEBUY','status=1','toolbar=no','resizable=no','scrollbars=no','height=700,width=510') ;">Click here to view a list of items that True Gold Buyers accepts.</a>

    I am having 2 problems. 1) I can't get the window to open up to the size that I need. Yesterday it was opening up about 3/4 the width of my screen, now it opens up full width and height of my screen. :/

    2) The window on which the link resides changes from that page to a new page where the title of the page has the javascript code as its title, and on the page one line that reads: [object Window]

    The page where this error is happening is ->http://www.truegoldbuyers.com/faqs/, The link on the second bullet point "What items do you buy" clicking on "Click here to view a list of items that True Gold Buyers accepts." triggers the errors.

    I did want to mention that I am new to javascript, this is actually my first implementation of js, so I'm not very familiar with the technicalities of it...yet. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    What I am trying to accomplish is for the page with the link not to change, and for a popup with a specific width and height.

    Thanks.

    Padonak! Thank you! You solved both of my problems! So then the specs/paramaters should all be enclosed within one set of single quotes? Not each one within single quotes? 'url','name','params'?

    Either way, thank you. One less headache.
