Blog Etiquette and target="_blank

Housekeeping, not security, this time. I like to read articles online and follow links without losing the original page. If I'm at a desktop machine with Firefox, that is easy. It gets annoying on PDAs and other portables- so I wish more people would use target="_blank" in their HTML anchor tags so that clicked links open in a new tab or browser window. That's what I generally do on this blog, write the tag so that my blog stays open when you click a link.

It turns out that some people are annoyed by the target="blank" function. I don't really get the objection, but that's life. And this is my blog, so I hope you'll understand that I'm doing what I want with it.
