I can't believe people are still having this discussion in 2005!
For the last 5+ years, the major graphical browsers, the ones used by
probably 99% of the web using population uses, has had the ability to
open a link in a new window by use of a modifier key pressed when
clicking a link, or by use of a contextual-menu, or by setting some
preference in a browser.
Let the user decide, they have the power. Why clutter up your site with
functionality the browser already provides?
