Once you have support in CSS, you can use DOM+CSS from JS.  No particular
support within JS is required.

Hi Ian,

What do you think about the GReader use case? In my eyes, it makes the _tab
scenario quite valid.

But, as mentioned by Adrian Sutton, there would be technical problems with
older browsers so this proposal has to be scrapped. On the HTML/CSS level,
this will be eventually handled by the 'target-new' property (which will be
more flexible than target="_tab" as well) and I hope it will find its way
into JavaScript too, eventually.

P.S. Sorry for not maintaining the thread sequence correctly, I couldn't
figure out how to do that (that's why I used the forum instead of the
mailing list in the first place :)
