The target attribute

You can also specify where you want your link to be opened using the target atttribute inside the
<a>
tag of your link.
  1. Create the following 2 links:
    <a href="http://www.scriptingok.com" target="_self">This link opens in the same window</a>
      <br />
      <br />
    <a href="http://www.scriptingok.com" target="_blank">This link opens in a new window</a>
  2. Preview your file in your browser, and click on both links.
The target _self is the default target; it will open your linked page in the same window where your source link is. So if you don't specify a target, _self will be used.

The target _blank will open your linked page in a new window (or tab, depending on your browser's settings).
