3L Epiphany: Question about Links and New Windows

You can control this behavior by setting the “target” attribute on an anchor tag to “blank.” I'd give you examples but you've set up your blog to reject HTML in comments so any examples will prevent me from submitting this comment. (BTW: I may be missing it, but I haven't found an email address on your blog, either. Such an address would allow readers to send you stuff that won't fit in comments for some reason and might therefore be a good idea.) Others will disagree w/me, but I encourage you to avoid making links open in new windows. This is annoys me no end b/c it puts the page author's preferences above my own as a reader. I prefer to respect my readers' intelligence and preferences and allow readers to decide whether to open a link in a new window, or a new tab, or whatever.
