Form processing

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I hope someone might be able to set me straight on how to handle the
situation described below.

I have a page that has an email field for user input and 2 radio buttons
(subscribe + unsubscribe) for signing up to a mailing list. What I would
like to have happen is the following:
The user enters an email and presses the submit button.
At this point a new window opens (I would like to be able to specify size,
etc rather than use _blank) to process the submission and return a reponse
(succeeded, already subscribed, etc). The user would then close the window
by clicking on a 'close' link in the new window.
I would also like the form data cleared, so the user doesn't think the
submission didn't work, despite seeing the confirmation window.

Any ideas?

Remember that many people now turn off popups (for good reason). If you
insist on using a popup you will likely loose many potential subscribers.
Just open a new page (as is common on the web) to indicate "success" or
"you're already registered" or whatever.
