Hi I'm having some trouble with windows.

Lets say i have on page 1:

<a href='test.html' target='_blank'>

And on the test.html page, i want to target the window that launched it.

<a href='javascrip:document.blahblaha' target='_parent'>
edit: i know its supposed to say J A V A S C R I P T but every time i type the full word i get 406 not acceptable error O_o

but this does not seem to work. is there a way to do this?

This might help.

There's also a bunch of stuff about refreshing the parent window. That should help you because it will show you how they targeted the parent window for refresh. You can prune through and see what you want.

But I think the first one will help the most.
