[pmwiki-users] %newwin% usage

I have seen %newwin% written up on some Links page, but did not find  
it on the Master Markup page.

Of course I needed to learn details about it because I obviously  
didn't understand its behavior from the limited documentation I did  
find.  Setting %newwin% prior to a link causes that link to open in a  
new window, but it also affects all the other links in that paragraph  
(or some following clump of text).  Eventually it reverts back to  
normal, but I don't know when.

Just to be silly, I added a %samewin% AFTER my first link and that  
fixed the problem, but I can't find that markup documented anywhere.

What's up??

Test case 1:

%newwin%[[link to some page in a new window]] and [[this also links  
to a new window]]

Test case 2:

%newwin%[[link to some page in a new window]]%samewin% and [[this  
links in the current window]]
