Andrew,

This code should do what you need, in IE 5+ anyway. I have no idea of how you
could achieve it in other browsers.


<a
  id="id_openInWebFolderLink"
  style="behavior:url(#default#AnchorClick);"
  target="_blank"
  href="http://www.example.com/subdir/content/"
  folder="http://www.example.com/subdir/content"
>Open In Web Folder</a>

Should be cleaner than the copy & paste solution you're thinking of.

If you find out how to do it in other browsers, I'd be glad to hear about it
thanx :-).

HTH,
