I could not resist sharing this. Shannon pointed me to this idea of simplifying English spelling. Check it out. I am agog. Which is spelled correctly even though it’s hilarious.

How to make all links open in new windows ~ the original Blogger Tips and Tricks

This tip for changing your CSS template really does work to force all URLs in a blog to open in a new window, saving you the trouble of coding “target=_blank” each time you add a URL. However, I’m conflicted about whether it’s the best choice because:
  1. It doesn’t warn users they’re opening a link in a new window. If they hover over a link, it doesn’t give any clue, whereas in my browser with the “target=_blank,” at the bottom of my browser window it reads, “Open [link] in a new window.” I don’t know how disorienting this invisible change might be for readers.
  2. It makes almost every URL behave this way. I just tested it on IntenseDebate and it doesn’t seem to be a problem, but someone said the submit button with Disqus tried to pop open a new window and so didn’t go anywhere for leaving a comment. I don’t know with Blogger’s inline commenting system if the same errors will occur.
