i have a menu script whcih displays menu on mouse over

it works fine

only thing i want to know is how do i open any particular page in a new window& pass paramters

ealier i was having a href instead of menu so had used target=_blank

currently when the menu option is clicked the new page opens in same window & no parameters are passed
