Right mouse click + Open in new Tab.
Or you can change your preferences so that CTRL+click opens in a new
tab rather than a new window.

No. HTML is moving away from that sort of thing.

No. It's the user's preference. HTML doesn't even know about tabs as
distinct from windows.

It's possible that CSS *may* be introducing this ability in the
future [1]. It's still only a draft it was only first published 3
months ago, on 2004-02-24, so don't expect it to be implemented any time
soon.

Some of the properties are intended to *suggest* whether the
hyperlink should spawn a new window or tab, however these will *always*
be overrideable through the user's own style sheet preference.

Eww. I wander what browsers without tabs will do. Will they open in same
window, or open in new window? Which iwould be desirable? Can't say I'm
nuts about this idea...

I don't like the idea of a stylesheet having control over anything outside
of the page in which the styles are embedded.

Middle-click, Control and left-click, or right-click and choose "Open in new
Tab".

This isn't your call as a Web site author.

User agents, including those without support for tabs, or even support
for multiple windows do not have to support this module. The idea is to
reduce the use of those awful javascript: or onclick="" links which
cannot be overridden easily by the user; or worse, not supported and
thus creating a dead link.

It would also formally define the presentation of, and a method for a
user to override the target attribute by creating a rule in the User's
or User Agent's style sheet.

eg.
a[target="_blank"] { target-name: root; }

which would always open a link like this:
<a href="..." target="_blank">...</a>
in the same window/tab rather than opening a new one.
