[Rd] CRAN website: link targets

Hello R-masters!

R and CRAN webpages use HTML frames for layout. Links to files such as PDF are therefore opened within frame. However, with PDFs this can be distracting if you have a small monitor, since left frame can be small for viewing PDFs with bookmark toolbar in the left in Acrobat Reader. It isn't such a bug problem with others i.e. (K)Ghostview etc, but it can be still small to look at.

I suggest to add targets to all links to PDF files. If one wants to see that link will be opened in new frame/tab then target="_blank" should used, otherwise target="_top" will cause that PDF will be opened "over all frames" of current website.

I can help if you find this idea good and don't find time to do it.

Lep pozdrav / With regards,
     Gregor Gorjanc
