Isn't there a way to open two or more windows at once without html scripting (javascript, vbscript...)?

Something like...

<a href="first.html","second,html" target="_blank">Click this to open first.html in a new window and second.html in another new window without use of extra scripting</a>

And not like...

<a href="javascript:window.open('first.html','first',lotsofconfigurationstuff);window.open('second.html','second',lotsofconfigurationstuff)">Click this to open first.html in a new window and second.html in another new window without use of extra scripting</a>

Not possible.

If you decide to use JavaScript, you can save some space:
* open instead of window.open
* leave second parameter blank
* everything that should not be added to the window will not be added as long as you specify at least something else
* just naming a feature will be treated as yes.

So
window.open('first.html','first','height=70,width=300,toolbar=no,scrollbars=no,location=yes')
can be
open('first.html','','height=70,width=300,location')

If you use frames, you can open in two new frames, thus effectively openning two new windows.

Sorry, it's not possible without some kind of scripting.

Theophilus,
Hmmm, where did I see your answer before?  Oh wait!  Martin gave that answer!

superquestions:
I'm sure you know the right thing to do -- reject Theophilus's answer and let Martin or someone else answer.

For shame, Theophilus, you've been around here for a while.  You should know better than that.
