Open in a new window for all links.

On URL links, there is now an option to "open in a new window". It would be good to have this for internal WIKI pages as well. AFAICS there are two kinds of links in my wiki, ones that continue the story and ones that are gobbits of information. For the latter, I want to go to another tab / new window. Also to give a consistent metaphor for the users, if it is set to open in a new windows, it should should have an icon by it to open in a new window.

In fact, all links could have an icon to open in a new window, then the user could easily chose without having to know about right clicking.

Thanks for the idea. I see that they use that type of link indication sometimes on Wikipedia.

I can't promise that we'll do this any time soon or at all, but I'll let you know if we do.
