[platform-help-dev] Invoking new browser window in V2.1 M3

Good morning,

I've just been testing our doc plugins with the V2.1 M3 build

In one of our topics, we invoke a new, completely plain, (with no controls)
browser window containing a Macromedia Flash "quick tour" of our product -
this was deliberate since we didn't particularly want Flash content
appearing within the Help system content pane.  In 2.0.2, this works
perfectly using the following snippet of JavaScript in the <HEAD> of our
launching HTML topic:

   <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
   <SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
   <!-- Begin
         function info(url) {

   //  End -->

And the following JavaScript in the <A>:

   <A href="quick_tour/quicktour.html" target="quickTour" onfocus
   ="if(this.blur)this.blur()" onclick="info('quick_tour/quicktour.html');
   return false;">Product_Name_Quick_Tour</A>

Where "quicktour.html" embeds the .swf Flash file.

Unfortunately, in the V2.1 M3 build, we get a brand new help system window
appearing complete with infoviews/ToC pane, navigation icons, etc...  This
is not the desired effect, and I was wondering if there was a way of
getting around this problem?

If not, would you like me to raise a bug?

Best wishes,
