New article - requested pop-up

I was in the WebmasterWorld forums last week and trying to help someone who had a problem with pop-up blockers - his legitimate application was being blocked internally because they had installed the Google toolbar in to Internet Explorer everywhere in the company. The toolbar's blocking isn't as good as Mozilla's native blocking, which allows through requested pop-ups - ones that you click on a link to launch - it blocks all pop-ups.

So I came up with a way of launching the window in an old-fashioned way using target="_new" and re-sizing the window once it has been spawned. It's not quite as elegant as creating the window at the right size, but it does work even if you have the Google toolbar installed. The write up on the method is here.
