My initial motivation for using a new window is that the web page I 
am designing contains primarily external links, and my logs show that 
once the visitor has moved to an external link they seldom return to 
the original page, on my site.  With a new window for external links 
they can continue to use my links page without the many clicks 
required to get back my site.  This works well for the sighted surfer 
with relatively new desktop hardware and software.

However, opening a new window may not be a good solution to resolve 
this problem, and I will continue my research and hope that I come 
across something that will work without causing additional problems.

Better to lose my visitors than confuse them.

I'll be keeping my eyes open for future developments.
