re: the new link thing .. if I were to code this in there would be no way to say 'open in tab' or 'open in window' - basically it would mean adding an attribute to links and then your browser decides what to do with it. If you've already got your browser set up to utilise tabs, then even if I added the code (which as standard opens a new window) the chances are very high that your browser would open it in a tab anyway (hoorah for browsers smarter than IE6).
However, this still goes against every fibre of my geeky being because I might not want a new tab - I might want to open the link in this tab. And so I am resisting for as long as possible... But don't tell aitch I said that. :P
Those of you who generally prefer links to open in new tabs can override link behaviour (on all websites) generally by middle-clicking the scrolly wheel on your mouse (so hover over the link, middle-click instead of left click) OR by holding shift as you click the link.
And thus ends my computer lesson for the day.
