It's easy to make links open in a new window, but it's rare that anyone will set up a web site so that all links do so, since it creates clutter. If you have some kind of sub-routine like picking a shirt size, or if you want to make a definition or tip available, then there are various options including a full-fledged new window (you can also to a large extent control the size and availability of menus and tools). Generally, though, with most browsers these days, users can choose on their own how they want links to open: for instance with a right-mouse click/menu selection, or by setting their browsers to different defaults.
