I use Javascript to close a window but it creates a pop-up saying browser is trying to close window etc. Can i prevent this popup from appearing and just close the window?

Many thanks. The line that closes my window (and puts up the popup is:

<a href="JavaScript:window.close(blank)">Close this window</a>

Where do I put your line: just after mine? If so, it does seem to help. Sorry if I'm being thick!

I have substituted it but it still creates the popup. This is my code for the document. I use Dreamweaver with only reasonable knowledge of writing HTML.
