I'm working with a site which has an intelligence centre. Basically it is a database of news articles. There are about 750 to 1000 articles in the database with each article linking to the source website.
The PR of my client's site is low and I think it could be due to some of the outbound links to poor PR sites.
Does anyone know of a robots.txt file that will disallow robots from spidering outboud links which are contained within target_blank. And would disallowing a robot to follow these links make any difference at all.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I do not think your outbound links would be the factor here. The way I understand outbound links they can only harm when pointing to a "bad site" or a site that has been banned/PR0d.
