One minor point to bear in mind is that quite a lot of web users resent
being told how to open new links - most modern web browsers give the
user the _option_ of opening a link in a new window, in a new tab, or to
replace the current window. It is of course possible to override the
preferences set by the site designer, but the more time is spent doing
that the less well-disposed the user is likely to feel to the web site.
