We're stuck with that, Doug, because the developers of this open-source software adhered rather ferociously to certain standards, including that one.

Note, however, that it took all of us only a week or so to get used to it when we moved to this PhpBB3 system last year. As 'winger pointed out, Right-click > Open in New Window will do it.

In some browsers it's even simpler. In Firefox as I have it set up, for instance, a simple Ctrl-Click opens a new tab.

Play around with these key combinations, and they'll soon become as natural as the old way. I hope! :)

Israel has never shown great (or even moderate) wisdom when it comes to taxing alcoholic beverages. For many years, for example, the taxes on Champagne accounted for 70% of the cost of those wines in Israel. In a stroke of wisdom, or perhaps simply because several people at the tax authorities suffered strokes at the same moment, one year ago the taxes on Champagne fell by 80% and even the atheists among us thanked God.
