HTML Forms

How do you (a) open a form when a radio button is clicked (b) in a new window?

Here's how it's done on this website.

<html>
<head>

<script type="text/javascript">

	/* javascript function called by the radio buttons 
	     to submit the form when clicked */

	function formSubmit()
	{
	document.getElementById("form_x").submit()
	}
	
</script>

</head>
<body>

  <form name="form_x" id="form_x"
	action="some_routine.php"
	target="newIMGwin"
	method="post" 
	style="whatever">

	<fieldset>
	<legend>legend surrounding the form</legend>

	<input type="radio" name="key" value="1269" onclick="formSubmit()" />

	</fieldset>
  </form>

</body>
</html>
