HTML Magic

Kudos to the good folks at blogger.com for the fancy, yet easy to use, editing box I'm using right now. The buttons are nice. I'd like to see something a little more WYSIWYG; I really like the interface that Outlook Express email client uses. Similar (but simpler) to the FrontPage, where there are three windows: edit, code and preview.

Anyway, I like the links on my websites to default to a new window, rather than staying in the same window and replacing the current contents. That works great for some old-fashioned websurfing, following the current wherever it takes you. You're on a trip. But for a site like this, where (sometimes) you're reading content (ha!) on the main page, and then you maybe have to read the story it refers to and then you come back and leave snarky comments. I like to leave the one page open and open the link in a new window, so I can refer back and forth, etc. To do it, put this tag right at the top of the page, below the title tag. [base target="new"] Use angle brackets rather than square brackets.
