Tested with Barcode4J web site. Noticed that <jump/> links don't spawn 
a new window (as I'd thought they did). At first I thought that was 
only true for /forrest run/, but it appears when using /forrest/ as 
NOTE: Could this be related to their old skinconf.xml file? I intend to 
update it with the newer version (with the external DTD), but haven't 
gotten around to it yet.

BTW on a side note, I've never really played with /forrest run/ before 
(I always just do /forrest/)... It's really nifty! I really like the 
way I can modify src *.xml file, and see the change immediately! Wow! 
I'm impressed. Never again will I wile away waiting for 2-6 minutes for 
each minor change... :-)
