Popup windows and JAWS

I was just wondering if there are problems associated with using JAWS
and popup windows. A client wants us to create an accessibility survey
for them and has suggested that it opens in a popup window. I am
advising that it opens in a normal browser window, as I'm fairly sure
this would be better practice, but can't find documentation to back this

Thanks in advance,

Transversal Corporation Ltd will be exhibiting at CIPD Annual conference & exhibition 2009 in
Manchester between 17 - 19 November, stand 510.
