As already stated, this is not possible to do from the server side.

You might also want to question why you need to open a new window anyway.
Typically, when I click a link that pops up a new window without me asking
for it, I feel like hitting someone in the face, hard.

There is a good reason why <a href="..." target="_blank"> isn't valid XHTML.
