  • solution...? (Score:2, Interesting)

    I agree, that's pretty annoying. One of the problems is that they use javascript: in the href attribute. From what I know, this isn't very accessible. Instead, they should do something like this:

    <a href="big.html" onclick="window.open('big.html', 'wopen'); return false;"><img src="thumb.jpg" border="0" /></a>

    The key is the return false; in the onclick section. This tells the browser not to follow the link specified in the href attribute. However, you can still right-click on the link and open it in a new window/tab.

    • I knew there was a solution.

      Now, how do we educate FrontPage users? :-)

      OK... OK... I know the world isn't perfect. I guess I'll have to live with that.
