I've got a page with an external link. I'd like to open it in a new

I was wondering if php could pull this off? Failing that, and not
really wanting to go there, would javascript work for this?

I take it

<A HREF="newwindow.html" TARGET="_blank">a new window</A>

is not part of the xhtml 1.0 strict dtd? Because I recently solved this
problem using the above syntax.

The GP is correct, target="_blank" is not valid XHTML 1.0 strict.

Here's some JavaScript to put in your page and run once the page completes loading. It looks for anchors having rel="nofollow" and rel="external" attributes in anchors and adds a target="_blank" attribute.

    function bahHumbugExternalLinks()
        if( !document.getElementsByTagName )

        var anchor  = null;
        var anchors = document.getElementsByTagName( 'a' );

        for( var i = 0; i < anchors.length; i++ )
            anchor = anchors[i];

            if( anchor.getAttribute( 'href' ) )
                if( anchor.getAttribute( 'rel' ) == 'nofollow'
                    anchor.getAttribute( 'rel' ) == 'external' )
                    anchor.target = "_blank";
