Getting new browser window to open

I have a JSP with several "submit" type buttons on it. (part of a Struts app)

My question is for just one of the buttons ("View"), I want to open a new browser window, but not for all of the buttons, just the View button.

Therefore, from my testing, I can't use an option like target="_blank" in the JSP's: <html:form action="/workPage.do" target="_blank>

Doing that would also open a new browser window for each of the other buttons, which is not what I want.

So, .... is there a way to selectively open a new browser window based on which "submit" button was clicked?

Thanks very much in advance.
