Problem with INPUT TYPE=button in JSP

I have a JSP that contains a table within a form <FORM method="get"> and there is an INPUT type=submit that submits the data in the table fields to a java bean. What I am having trouble with is that I also want an INPUT TYPE=button within the table to allow me to open a new window to be able to control the formatting of data that gets edited into a specific field in the table. I cannot get the INPUT TYPE=button to do anything. I have tried calling a JAVASCRIPT function in the onClick property of the INPUT and have tried using the window.open(), but to no avail.
Any ideas on what I need to do to get the <INPUT TYPE=button ...> to work inside a FORM that already has a button defined to perform a method="get"?

So what happens when you use the onClick attribute of the button? I've had no problems getting a JavaScript function invoked in this way.
A simple test:

(as usual, remove the underscore)
You might also want to get this moved to the HTML forum... nothing to do with JSP really.

Thanks Bear. I tried just doing the alert('Hi') as you have in your example and that works. The problem must be something else.

I've found in cases like this, Mozilla and its JavaScript Console are my best friends.
