Is it possible to open a new window via a url hyperlink w/o html code?

I would like this particular link to open in a new window w/o specifying _blank reference, since actual html code won't work.  I know you can hold the shift button down when you click a link to get a new window, but can you add something to the link itself?

I dont think you can without some kind of client side script. IF they are clicking on a hyperlink why couldnt you use some type of code?

Your options are specify a target (_blank) which is not XHTML compliant or to use javascript.

option 1:

<a href="somewhere.html" target="_blank">link</a>

option 2:

<script type="text/javascript">
function openLink(e)
{
    window.open(e.getAttribute("href"));
}
</script>

<a href="somewhere.html" onclick="openLink(this);return false">link</a>

<a href="somewhereElse.html" onclick="openLink(this);return false">link</a>
