I figured this out. Thanks anyway. To avoid attracting the popup blocker's attention, apparently a new window can only be opened as a result of the user's direct interaction, pretty much.
The solution was to create a new, empty window BEFORE firing off the Ajax request/response. Then during the Ajax response processing I can target the new window to receive the response to the first window's form action.
Depending on your application, another way to deal with the POST's response is to show the user a "DIV" in page. This way the user doesn't have to see another browser instance pop up. Some user my find instances of browsers popping up annoying. But is does depend on the targeted user experience...
Hope this helps...
Thanks - Mark
