Thanks for the link. There were two examples on the page. One of the two did exactly what I was looking for (the one that brought up the image in a separate window on the same page). I didn't think it was going to require so much coding to accomplishe this task. I'll download the associated files and see if I can figure out what's going on.
I thought I'd provide an update to this discussion. I was pretty sure that the open in a new nbrowser behaviour was the best way to tackle this problem, so I went back and gave it another try. This time it works perfectly. I suspect that I my problem was associated with a template linking problem I had. It's not as elegant as a scripted pop up window, and there is some extra white space I can't figure out, but overall it is a simple solution to an everyday need.
If anyone wants to take a look iy how it works just go to www.EmilioCorsetti.com and click on my picture. I use the technique elsewhere on the site, but this will work for a quick example.
There's a free extension I downloaded from Adobe's website called Picture Window Fever that will allow you to quickly set up a "click on this image to open a higher resolution image in a new window" in Dreamweaver. Once you have this installed, from the Dreamweaver's Behaviors panel, click the "+" and you'll see Fever. Choose "Open Picture Window Fever!" and a dialog box will open up for you to browse for a file, name the new window, adjust the window size and adjust its position. I find this very handy for websites where I have images that are too small to show the kind of detail I'm looking to show.
It's very handy for anyone's gallery, makes a site somewhat interactive and gives the website a "picture is worth a thousand words" selling power.
