Winopen function and browser behavior

I used the following script to allow me to bring up a list of events
for a given year by simply hovering the mouse over the filename. As
follows --

<script Language="JavaScript">
function winopen1(){
msg1=open
("","WINDOW1","toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,copyhistory=no,width=550,height=200");
msg1.location="1989H.htm"}
</Script>

Then....

<a href="1989H.htm" onMouseOver="winopen1();return true;"
onMouseOut="msg1.close();return true;">1989</a></font></td>

This is one example .... this is repeated about 20 times in the
program, one for each year of our history...

It works fine ... but not on all the browsers in our office. Most work
fine ... others (all IE) work fine on some dates; other dates, when
you hover, flash a blank page repeatedly until you move the mouse
away; almost as though it is looping ...

I notice that "about:blank" flashes briefly before the called page
comes up ... but that appears to be normal.... I have checked and
rechecked all coding, all brackets and semi-colons ... and it works
perfectly -- for me and for a few others.

Any ideas?

Thanks ...
