Shouldn't the first argument to open be a URL or an empty string?

I'm not sure what "keeps loading means" but after finishing writing the HTML, and closing the body and html elements you should call document.close():

newwindow.document.close(); did the trick

and yes it was a bit sloppy the html and body needed to be closed
