What are my options for have SharePoint 2010 allow a site collection to designate that the following items should open in a new window:

- External links
- Documents (PDFs, Office files, etc)

I don't want to affect the whole farm, and I don't want to know about changing settings on users' computers. I'm betting there will be people who don't read that last sentence. :)

The first link using JQuery looks the most interesting so far. Thanks...

I'm going to try this post, modifying it to use JQuery 1.7 and the on() method, since live() is deprecated:
