it's just as easy with js, even easier with jquery. write the js once
and just reuse it in all your projects.

add class= or rel="external" on your new window links and hook the js
to that. also, keeping the js out of the link means it'll still work
when the user's js is off.

but really. really really really. don't open links in new windows!
Every single one of your users know at least two functions in their
web browser of choice: clicking and the back button. If they want to
come back, they will.
