That is a great reason to allow target='NewWindowName' as well as .js 
open('NewWid=ndowName'. Most browsers will allow @target and can be 
user-configured to open in same tab, or new tab, or to follow the 
author's wish for a new window that is a child of the existing. Then 
we can have a true multiwindow document which is a lot more fun than 
multiple tabs. I mean the browsers are rigged for it, so why not?

Thanks and Best Regards,
