View Full Version : How to open a link in a blank page

05-19-2009, 09:23 AM
Hi everyone,

I am sitting with a sticky problem.

I am designing for XHTML Strict and I get a a validation error when I insert the following link into my html - <a href="http://www.cnn.com/" target="_blank">. It appears that "target="blank" cannot be used in XHTML Strict.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

Should I just go ahead and continue using this code without worrying too much about it?

Anita. :confused:

Hi Abduraooft,

Thanks for the great link.

I am studying this now. Maybe I should just let the viewer decide for himself. I have not thought about this option. Hmm!
