Opening links in new window

Since RapidWeaver 5, in all Styled Text controls there’s an option to open links in new windows.
By checking “Open in New Window” a rel=external attribute is added to the tag.
The attribute is mainly used for SEO purposes and doesn’t make browsers open links in new window.

In order to open link in new window you need to add a target=_blank attribute, but RapidWeaver doesn’t let you add it.

The default theme javascript will do that for you automatically.

@instacks Unfortunately not in all cases, depending on how text content is loaded into the page. Why not using simple target attribute or not letting add it as custom attribute?

Target attribute is a valid HTML 4.01 and HTML 5 keyword.

@dan Any chances of getting this fixed in next 7.1 (or later) release?
