Opening external links and documents in a new window

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. :)
