I'm curious as to why people (1) insist on making links open in new windows
these days (what with middle-click opening in new tabs and windows when
the /user/ wants them to), and (2) continue to use Javascript to do this
junk when there's a perfectly good HTML attribute ('target="_new"') that
you can give an <a href> tag.

Just ranting,
