How to make external links open in new window?

How can an ordinary user make external links open in a new window?

In HTML we use target="blank", but how to do it in bitweaver ? Without reverting to CSS, javascript etc.

Richard, do you mean make these links by using available syntax? My guess is, if the syntax does not support it, he or she can't. I have not tried to install extra syntax engines, so I'd say: allow HTML and inject an anchor tag...

(I know this is probably preaching to the choir, but it's so easy for the users to open links in new windows/tabs these days that forcing it may attract some bad rap from usability standpoint)
