This is my code:

<a Href="hidetonotspamthegroup" Target="NEW">
<img src="B_INCRIP.gif" width="130" height="44" alt="Inscription"

In that code i want to include a message box, Windows style with a OK and
CANCEL button,
to let know the visitor that the link will open a new window.

What i have to add to my code

Thank You VM

Stop being ridiculous. Post the URL of the actual document where your markup
appears, or expect advice that is at most at the same level of accuracy as
your description.

Are you sure you want to open the resource in a window named "NEW", if such
a window exists?

And how is the user supposed to know it's a link when you have removed the
border that might convey that idea?

You have misunderstood what HTML is. It's not a programming language.

I could tell how to achieve the desired effect on wrongly configured
browsers using JavaScript, but then I would have to... tell you a long

Just don't open any new windows, mm'kay? Leave it to users. _If_ you decide
to ignore this best advice, put a warning in normal prose in normal textual
content of the document before the link. That's the only way to tell it in a
reliable way. Well, not really. The user might activate the link from a list
of links constructed by the browser, or tab to the link bypassing the
warning, etc. But the best way of issuing a warning.
