Links to new windows

It always bothers me when links on a website lead to a new window when I'm
not expecting, especially when they open a PDF. For that matter, it bothers
me when I do expect a new window and it doesn't happen (an external site).

It seems to me this is an area where the web could use a new convention, so
that users would better understand the consequences of an interaction before
taking it.

Interaction Designer Certification

<> certification
courses and achieved the Cooper-Certified Interaction Designer designation?
If so, is it worth the time and monetary investment?

I attended the four-day Interaction
<> Design Practicum a
year ago and, after putting the training to use in my company, I would like
to further my knowledge.

What is the specific product from ADP that is the focus of your example?

When I read this the first thing I thought of was online support services
for web services (like hotmail). Try to get an answer to a support issue.
