Allowing users to open links in new window

Is there a good way to allow users to set links to open in new windows.

At the moment I’m using markitup and markdown. Is there a different text editor combination (without going WYSIWYG) that would allow them to do that without them having to use code?

Have you considered a JavaScript solution?

Thanks Drew, do you mean in the editor or in the page itself so that all external links open in a new window/tab?

In the page itself.

Thanks, I’ll do it that way then. That also saves her having to worry about remembering to add it when she creates links.
