%newwin% is an example of a wikistyle, such as %red% or %blue%.
A wikistyle normally affects all text up to the end of the markup
line or the next wikistyle. Thus:
%newwin% [[Link1]] [[Link2]]
causes both Link1 and Link2 to open in new windows, while
%newwin% [[Link1]] %% [[Link2]]
means only Link1 opens in a new window. And
does the same, since the end of a line ends the current wikistyle.
Block wikistyles are a little different, in that they apply to
the entire block (i.e., paragraph or list):
%block red% This text is red %blue% this is blue %% this is red again
Hope this helps.
