Apologies when I overlooked a similar reply: CSS 3 will likely provide a mechanism for that by the “target” property [1] (à la “target: tab;”). And while tests do indeed show that opening new windows/tabs is usually NOT advisable (if not related to certain document types [2]), using CSS will certainly be more appropriate than any HTML or scripting solution.
