Normally, if i create a javascript pop-up, the link will open the specified htm file in something that looks like a tool-tip at the cursor location. This is the way it works in IE10 in windows 7 and is what I want.

Unfortunately, in windows 8.0 IE 11, it opens a new browser window in the top left corner of the display. I don't like this because, instead of easily clicking away to close the pop-up, the user has to close a browser window. Ths is especially not user friendly when using tap gesture in tablet.

I would appreciate a way to modify the html to continue to get the tool tip style pop-up in windows 8.

here's the html:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<meta name="generator" content="Adobe RoboHelp 9" />
<title>Home Page 03</title>
<link rel="StyleSheet" href="default.css" type="text/css" />

<?rh-script_start ?><script src="ehlpdhtm.js" type="text/javascript"
language="JavaScript1.2"></script><?rh-script_end ?>
<h1>Home Page 03</h1>
<p>Type topic text here.</p>
<p><a href="javascript:BSSCPopup('User_Experience.htm');" id="a1">This
is a link</a></p>
<?rh-script_start ?><script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">//<![CDATA[if( typeof( FilePopupInit ) != 'function' ) FilePopupInit = new Function();
FilePopupInit('a1');//]]></script><?rh-script_end ?>
