MovableBlog: Zeldmen and Haughey on Suppressing New Windows

Nuance 2.0

May 3, 2003

Jeffrey Zeldman and Matt Haughey have added some useful comments to my suppress new windows post at Blogzilla. After having given hundreds of introductions to the Internet (best summer job I had, for three summers no less), I can identify with Matt's comments especially, because new windows with 'broken' back buttons are confusing to new users. Zeldman takes the designer's perspective, and notes that designers who wish to force a new window in XHTML 1.0 Strict can do so with a workaround, but recomments sticking with XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
