Always remember though that the very _idea_ of XHTML 1.1 strict
discourages target not because of spite, but because it is meant to
work in more than just browsers. XML does not expect several windows
to be available and neither does XHTML 1.1 strict.

You also don't really need popups any longer:


Hacking around that idea - letting the USER decide when to open a new
window - is not necessarily embracing evolution of a technology.
