Ahhh, I've seen this before.  I think the OP is browsing "Dive into Python",
by way of an old version of privoxy.  By default its popup blocking
functions used to rewrite "window.open(..." as something like (from memory)
"concat(window, ....".

The newer verions rewrite it as "PrivoxyWindowOpen(..." which is at least a
bit more recognisable.
