I am opening a NEW window on a URL that takes long time for the server to process. And I like to display a wait message in the NEW window to the user first. What is the best way to do this?

this is what you can do///I will give you two options, but there are more..
first
Have the new window as a pop under and in the code of the new window html put self.focus() for onload....that might do it, and have a layer on the main page say////Loading Please Wait
second idea
Have the new window being frames, have the top window say {age Loading Please Wait and have the bottom frame be the information. You can dynamically change the top frame after the bottom has loading///
both ideas require that the code that is being generated must be able to contain javascript
Need more help just hollar
