    How do I tweak to not open new window

    I found a cool site search script in javascript. Only problem is it opens results in a new window. Anyone know how I can tweak this so that results are on the same page?

    <!-- Begin
    var item = new Array();
    c=0; item[c]=new Array("index.html","","DemoSite","index,main,start,home,front","Demonstration search engine data about an imagined but probable internet site.");
    c++; item[c]=new Array("about.htm","","About Me","about,author,contact,email,who","Contact details and general information about the creator of the site and what the site is about.");
    c++; item[c]=new Array("links.htm","","Links page","links,more,where,similar,friends","Links to my favourite sites which I find interesting. Other friends sites which have similar interests to my own.");
    c++; item[c]=new Array("main.htm","main/","Main Page","content,main,focus","The main part of my site which contains what you have come to see. Lots of stuff like that and more great things. All in a sub directory.");
    c++; item[c]=new Array("logo.jpg","main/images/","Link Logo","link,image,logo,graphic","The logo.jpg is just a small image which you can place on your site as a link to me. It's in a second level subdirectory.");
    page="<html><head><title>Search Results</title></head><body bgcolor='white'><center><table border=0 cellspacing=10 width=80%>";
    function search(frm) {
    win ="","","scrollbars");
    txt = frm.srchval.value.split(" ");
    fnd = new Array(); total=0;
    for (i = 0; i < item.length; i++) {
    fnd[i] = 0; order = new Array(0, 4, 2, 3);
    for (j = 0; j < order.length; j++)
    for (k = 0; k < txt.length; k++)
    if (item[i][order[j]].toLowerCase().indexOf(txt[k]) > -1 && txt[k] != "")
    fnd[i] += (j+1);
    for (i = 0; i < fnd.length; i++) {
    n = 0; w = -1;
    for (j = 0;j < fnd.length; j++)
    if (fnd[j] > n) { n = fnd[j]; w = j; };
    if (w > -1) total += show(w, win, n);
    fnd[w] = 0;
    win.document.write("</table><br>Total found: "+total+"<br></body></html>");
    function show(which,wind,num) {
    link = item[which][1] + item[which][0]; 
    line = "<tr><td><a href='"+link+"'>"+item[which][2]+"</a> Score: "+num+"<br>";
    line += item[which][4] + "<br>"+link+"</td></tr>";
    return 1;
    //  End -->
    <form method=get action="javascript:void(0)" onsubmit="search(this); return false;">
    <tr><td><input type=text name=srchval value=""><input type=submit value="Search"></td></tr>
    <font face="arial, helvetica" size="-2">Free JavaScripts provided<br>

    The quickest fix should be to change the line which reads:

    win ="","","scrollbars");

    to read:

    win = window;
