Hi Julia,

There are several ways to do this. The easiest is the following:

<a onclick="window.open(this.href); return false;" onkeypress="window.open(this.href); return false;" href="abc">text</a>

If the browser does not support JavaScript or it's no enabled, the link will open in current window.

Standards-compliant XHTML (Strict / 1.1) WYSIWYG editor
