moving new window before opening it
i'm trying to open up a new window and move it to a certain place relative to the opener window.
win = window.open(page, "smallWindow", "height=400, width=650, menubar=no, toolbar=no, status=no, scrollbars=no");
works great, except that it opens the window and THEN moves it...which kind of looks crappy. i want to be able to set the window to the new position before it is open so it looks smoother.
are there any values i can set in the window.open() third parameter to do this (devEdge lists a screenX and screenY but i can't get those to work)? any other ideas if not?

DeveEdge was right, it is screenX and Y...but it's NS specific, and since you said it didn't work, i'm guessing that you have IE. Do some browser checking and branching, and for IE use left and top instead of screenX and Y. good luck.
