    Pop-up script with a variable from parent form

    Here is a neat little popup window script I like to use.

    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    var newwindow = '';
    function popitup_deletecounty(url) {
    	if (!newwindow.closed && newwindow.location) {
    		newwindow.location.href = url;
    	else {,'deletecounty','height=200,width=250, left=230, top=348');
    		if (!newwindow.opener) newwindow.opener = self;
    	if (window.focus) {newwindow.focus()}
    	return false;
    // -->
    The html href looks like this

    PHP Code:
    <a href="/dataservices/geoeval_deletecounty.php?pjid=<?php echo $Request_ID;?>&id=<?php echo $Site_ID;?>&geid=<?php echo $GE_ID;?>"
    onClick="return popitup_deletecounty('/dataservices/geoeval_deletecounty.php?pjid=<?php echo $Request_ID;?>&id=<?php echo $Site_ID;?>&geid=<?php echo $GE_ID;?>')" 
    name="deletecounty" > delete </a>
    Can someone help me use the name attribute of the href in the javascript function, ie.

    function popitup_namevariable(url)?

    I'd like to make the script generic so I can just use it as a source instead of the whole thing and so I can use it multiple times in the same page with different links.

    I am new at this so if anyone can give me some pointers it would be much appreciated.

    Can someone help me to use t
