Default IE7 and JavaScript

I have an old page that displays a popup window using JavaScript within an ASP page, like this:
Response.Write("<a href='" + strCurrentQSURL + "&print=true' onclick=""NewWindow(this.href,'name','800','600',' yes');return false;"" target='_blank'>Printer-friendly Version</a>")

...but when I tested this link in IE7, it crashed the app all together. When I removed the reference to onclick=""NewWindow(this.href,'name','800','600',' yes');return false;"", it worked fine. I want to keep the window-resize feature, so is there a way to make this javascript open window code work in IE7? Thanks for any help.

...by the way, here's the function that goes with it:

<!-- Begin
    if (window != top) top.location.href = location.href;

    function NewWindow(mypage, myname, w, h, scroll)
     var winl = (screen.width - w) / 1.5;
     var wint = (screen.height - h) / 1.65;
     winprops = 'height='+h+',width='+w+',top='+wint+',left='+winl+',scrollbars='+scroll+',resizable'
     win = window.open(mypage, myname, winprops)
     if (parseInt(navigator.appVersion) >= 4) { win.window.focus(); }
    var isNN = (navigator.appName.indexOf("Netscape")!=-1);
    function autoTab(input,len, e) {
    var keyCode = (isNN) ? e.which : e.keyCode; 
    var filter = (isNN) ? [0,8,9] : [0,8,9,16,17,18,37,38,39,40,46];
    if(input.value.length >= len && !containsElement(filter,keyCode)) {
    input.value = input.value.slice(0, len);
    input.form[(getIndex(input)+1) % input.form.length].focus();
    function containsElement(arr, ele) {
    var found = false, index = 0;
    while(!found && index < arr.length)
    if(arr[index] == ele)
    found = true;
    return found;
    function getIndex(input) {
    var index = -1, i = 0, found = false;
    while (i < input.form.length && index == -1)
    if (input.form[i] == input)index = i;
    else i++;
    return index;
    return true;
   //  End -->

I think you have to escape double-quotes by using the backslash instead of double-double-quotes. I thought that was true for all versions of javascript but I could be mistaken.

IE6 doesn't appear to give you an error but I don't think it works correctly either. IE7 actually gives an error.
