I know that it's not good practice to open new windows but I think that there are instances where it is valuable from a usability point of view. Currently I am working on a help system for an intranet and want the help page(s) to open in a new window (with the necessary prior warning to users of course) so that users can work through the help page whilst still looking at the site. My questions is, since the use of target is deprecated, how is it possible to open a new window without the use of javascript? I don't really want to use client-side scripting if at all possible but can't see any way round this problem.
