Suggestion: Extend the Hyperlink dialog with rel attribute

Extend the Hypperlink dialog and add "rel" attribute to the options, so that it can be edited. This is quite important for security reasons if you use "target=_blank"

I've been thinking about this one and thought it might be simpler just to add another _blank option to the existing dropdown.

Code: Select all
_blank rel="noopener noreferrer"

It's a bit odd and it would require a tiny bit of code to check it, but adding a generalized REL field invites unexpected uses. It also raises the question of why other relevant attributes for a link are not included.

This strikes me as simpler.
