Try this somewhat messy banged together JS:

(edit values for linkurl &linktext and edit "_blank" to your desired frame 

<script language="JavaScript">

var linkurl = "//www.linkurl.com";
var linktext = "linktext";

function print_munged_link()
    document.write("<A HREF=\"http");
    document.write(":" + linkurl );
    document.write("\" Target=\"_blank\">" + linktext + "<\/a>");



<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
