Description: The links in this sentence open in a new window / tab, seemingly unintentionally?

Comment: I have used 'open in new window' as standard - to avoid people having to click back and forth on back buttons - any reason why you think this is wrong?

Comment: Just IMHO, that behaviour should be reserved for links that take you out of our site. I think clicking back and forth for that kind of thing is expected.

Comment: Agreed and I have had my hand slapped on this. I will do my best to retrofit existing pages so only external links open new window.
